Masterclass: Deep Slumped Forms – Karl Harron

Mon 19 September- 10:00 am - Fri 23 September- 4:30 pm


Course Outline

"Form: which shape is determined, as distinguished from the material of which it is composed, giving it individuality and a distinctive character".

The aim of this five-day Masterclass is to achieve a sublime deep vessel form in kiln-cast glass. You will be encouraged to develop your aesthetic and conceptual perspective, rather than simply mastering the technique, while negotiating the technical challenges of deep-slumping into three-step ceramic moulds.

You will be using a pre-fired blank made of two colour reactive opalescent Bullseye sheet glass. Powerpoint presentations, technical talks and discussions will encourage and enable students to expand their ideas once outside the classroom.

This is not a beginners’ course but don't be put off by the term ‘masterclass’, If you are comfortable handling glass and wish to expand your knowledge and understanding of the material then this is an ideal opportunity to learn from a master glassmaker.

Just wanted to say thank you for another wonderful course at The Glass Hub. It is a treat to visit and learn in such beautiful surroundings. Thanks to Helga and… more

Ulster Artist and master craftsman Karl Harron, born in Belfast 1953 is a respected and successful glass artist now based in N. Ireland. With an emphasis on design-led, innovative work, his distinctive style is characterised by the subtle tones and complex mark making created by exploiting a third element within the body of his pieces, created at the interface between reactive glasses. His aesthetic vision demonstrates a profound appreciation of processes and critical enquiry.

His work is held in corporate, private and public collections throughout the world including The Permanent Collection North Lands Creative Glass Scotland; National Museum of Ireland Collection of Decorative Arts; Bullseye Glass Company Corporate Collection Portland; Taidemuseo Museum of Art Finland; Giselle and Ben Huberman (Private Collection) Washington DC USA; Dan Klein and Alan J Poole (Private Collection) London GB; Broadfield House Glass Museum; The Ulster Museum Permanent Collection Belfast; The National Museums of Scotland Edinburugh; The Collection of the Arts Council of N.
