Luminous Graphics


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

For millennia, artists have used graphics, from the earliest figurations at Chauvet Cave in France using pigment sprayed over a human hand as a stencil, to contemporary artists such as Warhol and Rauschenberg incorporating photo silkscreen and graphic content into their work. Whether a simple stencil or complex photograph, the graphic image is potent.

Students in this class will develop fluency in image-making methods using drawings, photographs, digital images, and prints. Painting with enamels and frits, sandblasting, and photo sandblasting will also be explored. Students will also try image transfer production and application, frit wafer making, and enamel filling and fusing to create multi-layer glass panels. Students using image transfer of their own creation will work in advance of the class with the instructor to produce custom-made fusible decals. No glassmaking experience is required. All skill levels are welcome.
