Explore the limitless world of kilnforming with recycled glass! In this experimental workshop, students will be introduced to the technical, visual, and conceptual possibilities offered by recycled and repurposed glass in the kiln. Guided by demonstrations and technical lectures, we will complete a fast-paced series of experimental kiln tests utilizing various types of found and collected glass. Make the most of recycled materials through the combination of coldworking, stacking, gluing, painting, melting, slumping, and distorting.
Along with an impressive variety of glass scrap provided by the UrbanGlass studios and beyond, students are encouraged to bring any found or collected glass that they would like to research during the workshop. This class is designed for anyone (with or without glass experience) who would like to take chances and reduce waste in their studio.
