Masterclass: Flexible Fusing – Matthew Szosz

Mon January 31 2022- 10:00 am - Fri February 4 2022- 4:30 pm


Course Outline

In this three-day course participants will explore principles of advanced pattern forming in fused glass. Using pre-formed Bullseye glass stringer sheets, students will expand their knowledge and experience of kiln-forming and cold-working techniques to produce intricate patterns which utilise symmetry and geometry to create hypnotising mandala-like patterns.

Participants will be guided through the creation of Bullseye glass stringer sheets which once fired will be deconstructed and reassembled. Participants will learn how the arrangement of tone and colour can enhance the optical properties of the pattern design and how to lay out the pattern using principles of four-fold and eight-fold symmetry. Students will utilise these concepts and techniques to create a glass tile of their own design.

Matthew Szösz

Matthew Szösz prefers his sculpture to be discovered rather than created, and works in partnership with material and process to explore new families of form.

He has received a BFA, BID, and MFA in Glass from Rhode Island School of Design. As well as, the Jutta Cuny-Franz Prize, the Borowsky Prize, and a Tiffany Foundation grant, and has been an artist in residence at programs across the US, Denmark, Japan and Australia. He has taught at Virginia Commonwealth University, University of Washington, Toyama, Penland, Pilchuck, Pittsburgh Glass Center, and Public Glass in San Francisco, where he was executive director.

In 2010 he founded Hyperopia Projects, curatorial/ project group based in the USA that advances cross-genre material based sculpture and critical thought. He currently lives and works with his wife, Anna Mlasowsky, in Seattle, WA.
