This course will focus on all the steps to make a hollow form in cast glass. We will start by building a wax vessel, considering the interior and exterior surfaces and positive and negative possibilities. We will then work through the steps of sprueing our models, constructing a core armature, pouring a core for the mold, and creating the exterior mold. The class will cover a wide range of technical information at each of these stages. Students will then learn the protocols for loading molds into the kiln, firing, and learn about divesting finished pieces. Actual divestment will be done after class ends, as the molds will fire for multiple days. Conversations about individual designs, glass flow, and annealing will also be provided. This course will best suit students with some previous moldmaking experience.
