Glass Casting and Pate de Verre
Instructor: Jody Danner Walker & Brad Walker
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.
In this fast paced 4 day workshop we’ll approach glass casting from several angles, including:
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.
All levels, four days
10:00 to 4:30 first three days, 10:00 to 3:00 last day
