Masterclass: Flexible Fusing – Matthew Szosz

Mon 7 February- 10:00 am - Fri 11 February- 4:30 pm


Course Outline

Build flexible, inflatable, and expandable fusings that are brought out of the kiln to be worked in three dimensions on this exciting five day course with Mathew Szosz. This class focusses on using the fusing kiln as a platform for the free-form shaping of warm glass. You will learn methods and techniques for assembling fusible structures in flat glass and then bring those structures to a working point from which they can be manipulated either inside or outside the kiln. You will also be encouraged to develop your own methods for  manipulating warm glass, and for the construction and assembly of created parts in the hotshop.

This will expand your skill set and introduce new possibilities with radical new approaches to warm glassmaking.

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.
