Color, Light, Glass: An Introduction to Kiln Formed Glass

November 5th - December 10th
Jane Bruce |

Designed with the beginner in mind, this informative class will guide students through the possibilities of what can happen when sheet and crushed glass are fused, bent or slumped in a kiln. Using a wide variety of glasses from the colorful Bullseye Glass palette, students will gain a fundamental understanding of the kiln forming processes, including cutting glass, sheet and strip construction and working with powders and frits (crushed glass). After a number of introductory sessions covering the basics, students will have the opportunity to explore and create their own individual projects. Basic cold working techniques will be introduced to enhance and finish projects. Hands-on studio work will be complemented by a presentation on historic and contemporary kiln formed glass. Although aimed at the beginner, this class is also useful for those who wish to revisit the basics.

Students enrolled in this course have access to Student Hours- scheduled time outside of class to practice and work on projects throughout the semester. For any questions regarding this access please contact Kellie at kelliek@urbanglass.org.
