Dynamic Kilncarving

Friday, April 26 to Sunday, April 28, 2019
Instructor: Brad Walker

*** New *** Basic kilncarving involves laboriously cutting fiber paper to create designs in glass.  Not only can it be bad for your health, it can take hours to create an intricate design.  And you can only use it once.

Instead, go beyond the basics with this innovative approach to creating texture in glass.  After a refresher on the traditional approach, we'll explore two alternative ways to kilncarve.  Create your design in clay, on a sheet of paper, or even with a computer.  Be as intricate as you wish, create a design that's yours and yours alone, and then learn how to go from design to finished mold that you can use over and over again.  It's the best way to bring texture to the underside of your glass.

Students will learn:

  • the basic kilncarving process
  • two alternative ways to create texture in glass:
    • using clay
    • using Ceramguard and vermiculite board
  • how to create designs that look good in glass
  • how to go from your design to finished mold
  • the best way to fire your pieces to minimize or eliminate ugly trapped air bubbles

Best of all, you'll get to make several pieces and even keep the molds you create.

Familiarity with glass cutting and with basic fusing and slumping techniques is recommended, but not essential.  All materials will be provided.

All levels, three days Price: $450
10:00 to 4:30 first two days, 10:00 to 3:00 last day
