Event description

Description

We all have varied and intimate experiences with materials in our daily lives. Hands-on experimentation and conversation in the hot shop will guide our search for intimacy with molten glass— we will seek to be sensitive to the material in a way that allows the glass to lead our processes. What makes glass self-animate? Can we feel the elasticity of different glass types? How might we shape the glass without tools? What is achieved by this kind of material practice?

Throughout this course we will look at artists who embody making and knowing with emphasis on materiality. Together we will practice being perceptually open to the inherent power of materials, allowing the glass to communicate with our instincts to make, test, manipulate, remake. The exercises in this class will offer a variety of blown and hot casting possibilities to serve students’ individual ideas and projects. All levels are welcome.
