Hot Printing on Glass


August 24 - 29, 2020
Kiln Working
All Levels
One-Week Session

Explore a unique mixture of kiln-forming and pâte de verre processes, based on the principles of intaglio printing. Create objects and installations, paying attention to aesthetic qualities, different stages of transparency, and the unique graphic and sculptural possibilities of this process.

Using a variety of mold making materials (plaster-silica, talc, fiber frax, wax and silicone), this technique allows a direct transfer of drawings, hand written text and structures from a mold onto glass. This is treated as a printing process to create flat molds as printing plates onto which glass frit and powders are fused.

From there, students will move into three dimensions by manipulating the glass during the firing (free forming, folding) and exploring various slumping methods. Glass frit will be made in the hot shop in combination with glassblowing powders, with the option to take castings further into furnace-working processes. Students should bring drawing materials, small objects, and texts as inspiration. This class welcomes all skill levels.
