Experimental Kilnforming with Recycled Glass

Class Dates: Wednesday, June 19th to Sunday June 23rd. 10:00 am to 6:00 pm

Explore the limitless world of kilnforming with recycled glass! In this experimental class, you will be introduced to the technical, visual, and conceptual possibilities offered by recycled and repurposed glass in the kiln. Guided by demonstrations and technical lectures, we will complete a fast-paced series of experimental kiln tests utilizing various types of found and collected glass. Make the most of recycled materials through combining coldworking, stacking, gluing, painting, melting, slumping, and distorting. Along with a variety of provided scrap glass, students are encouraged to bring found or collected glass to research during the class. This class is designed for any artists (with or without glass experience) who would like to take chances and reduce waste in their studio.
