Technique: Furnace Casting
Level: All Levels
Duration: One-Week Session
In this class, you will explore the creative possibilities of sand casting hot glass working with the molds, inclusions and surfaces. The class will explore the aesthetic and expressive opportunities of narrative imagery in glass as well as the technical aspects of casting with inclusions. This unique technique of casting allows for the hand of the artist on glass.
Sand casting, hot sculpting, enameling, and stenciling will be covered. You will paint with frits and enamels for the inclusions that will be encased in the hot glass. You’ll also explore the sculptural potential of sand casting by creating multiples and elements that can be assembled to form larger pieces, as well as surface treatment options, including organic material, stenciled imagery and textures. No casting experience required, some glassblowing experience useful.
