Course Outline

Create beautiful thin-walled vessels and delicate sculptural objects with subtle translucency using a glassmaking technique known as Pâte de Verre. In this class you will be introduced to the pâte de verre process starting with a range of intuitive ways to fabricate positive models. This may include, but is not limited to, modelling in clay, plaster, foam, paper, card, and wax. From your models you will produce negative refractory moulds ready to be packed with a paste of crushed glass frit mixed with a binding agent.

Using a range of grades of frit, you will experiment with colour mixing and blending to produce a palette of unique hues and tones. You will also learn how to pack, programme and fire kilns for pâte de verre.
