Glass on the Move
Instructor: Brad Walker
Saturday, July 10 to Monday, July 12, 2021
Don’t just sit still! Join us for an intensive, three day exploration of the principles of glass flow and displacement.
We’ll start by exploring basic principles and creating samples eight different kinds of flow pieces.
Then we’ll take what we learned and refine our initial experiments by creating larger slabs and stacked pieces that flow in the kiln in unexpected ways. Before it’s all done, you’ll have created eight smaller and two larger flow pieces that illustrate a myriad of ways that glass can move in the kiln.
Along the way we’ll also cover basic coldworking techniques, ways to get the most out of refractory materials and dams, and how to design firing schedules that will result in perfect pieces every time.
All experience levels are welcome, experience with glass cutting and fusing is definitely a bonus.
10:00 to 4:00 first two days, 10:00 to 3:00 the third day.
