Masterclass: Kiln Casting – Fiaz Elson

Tue 25 May- 10:00 am - Fri 28 May- 4:30 pm


Course Outline

An inventive and experimental course - exploring mould-making techniques, colour manipulations and cold-working. Students will focus on the interior space and colour processes involved in kiln casting. Movement will be created as veils and streaks of colour with the addition of block, frits and powders. Well known for her beautiful use of colour in cast sculpture, Fiaz will encourage students to experiment and find their own personal expressions.

Course Tutor - Fiaz Elson

fiaz elson

Fiaz Elson trained in fashion and design, fine art and silversmithing before studying Glass design gaining a BA Hons degree. She worked with Colin Reid as his senior assistant for four years before setting up her own studio practice. Her glass sculptures are expressive in their form, provoking an emotional and intellectual response. She investigates form and volume to communicate and respond to the material but also create tension and contradictions. They explore our emotive worlds; experiences and memories that make us who we are. We all have several sides to our personalities and, consciously or unconsciously, we reveal or keep them hidden. This concept is expressed through the use of curves, angles, line, colour and space.

She has been constantly selected to show at the British Glass Biennale as well as other important exhibitions in the UK and has been selected for several important shows in Europe; representing British Glass makers at the most recent Coburg Glass Prize Germany, Modern Masters in Munich and she was one of twenty five selected makers representing British Glass at the GlazenHuis, Belgium Glass Museum.

Elson is a sought after workshop leader and teacher most recently teaching at the Royal College of Art, Farnham University, Swansea Met and the Cork Sculpture Factory. Her works are in several private and public collections in USA, Japan, Hong Kong, Europe and the UK.
