This experimental workshop will focus on designing hot cast, glass objects to be paired with and lit by neon. Class time will alternate between the hot shop and neon studio, allowing one to inform the other. Students will learn the basics of sand casting and ladle pouring hot glass, creating colorful and inventive shapes in the studio. From casting pancakes of glass directly on the marver, to setting up inclusions and impressions in sand, students will dig in to playful and immediate techniques. Students will then move into the neon studio, learning the basics of bending their own tubes to create neon signs or sculptures to pair with the hot cast objects.
