Form & Surface

July 19th - July 23rd
Jessica Jane Julius, Erica Rosenfeld |

Stamps, molds, and customized tools have a long-standing history in artistic production and industrial manufacturing to create multiples, texture, and specific forms that cannot be produced through traditional blowing techniques. This class will emphasize the development of experimental hot glass techniques to achieve multiples with unique forms and surfaces. We will create molds, tools, and stamps with readily available inexpensive materials such as metal, wood, graphite, clay, food, and found objects. Additionally, we will examine alternative methods of assemblage through techniques of constructing including gluing, sewing, cold working, and other cold connections that can be utilized to create sculptures, installations, and design works. Students should be prepared to expand on their current body of work but open and excited to challenge their own rules of making. Some glass experience and a love of teamwork are necessary.

This is an in-person class taking place on-site at UrbanGlass. Health and safety guidelines will be emailed to you upon registration. Our top priority is keeping our community safe. At UrbanGlass, masks are still required for all ages 2 and older (we recommend a KN95 or KF94 mask). Temperature checks continue at the security desk when entering through the Rockwell entrance. We ask that if you were recently directly exposed to COVID-19 and are awaiting test results that you do not come to class, and we will work with you to find another class placement or refund you the class fee. Current policies are subject to change based on additional information, including the city's new alert levels page.
