This class will focus on using the fusing kiln as platform for free form
shaping of warm glass. Students in this class will build flexible, inflatable, and
expandable fusings that can be brought out of the kiln to be worked in three
Students will learn methods and techniques for assembling fusible
structures in flat glass, and bringing those structures to a working point from
which they can be manipulated either inside or outside the kiln. Students will
also be encouraged to develop their own methods for the manipulation of
warm glass, and for construction and assembly of created parts in the hotshop.
This will expand skill sets and possibilities in radical new ways, and open
whole new areas for artist/ student exploration. Experimentation and
innovation, as well as performative possibilities of the techniques will be
discussed and encouraged.
