A comprehensive exploration of methods for casting glass, from simple open faced castings to more elaborate techniques such as lost wax casting and casting with rubber molds.
Open faced, or bas relief casting
Lost wax casting, from start to finish
Pate de verre, using a "paste of glass" in a mold
Mold making with clay and plaster, as well as using rubber molds
Coldworking techniques for casting.
This is a hands-on class in which students will learn to use existing molds or create their own molds from clay and plaster. Focus will be on creating a number of smaller pieces that showcase each technique. Experience with basic kiln processes is helpful, but not required.
