Discover hot glass casting in this fast-paced, hands-on introductory class. Beginning with open face tiles and progressing to more complex forms cast in sand, graphite and plaster-silica molds, students will create sculptural objects through the ladling of molten glass into their own individual molds. Explore the exciting possibilities of pouring hot, molten glass whilst at the same time learning fundamental hot casting techniques, including mold making and firing schedules. Coldworking techniques will be introduced to refine and finish individual castings. Experiment and have fun.
