Open Casting

Thu Sep 23 2021- 10:00 am - 4:30 pm


Course Outline

An opportunity to work with mould making to create simple but striking cast glass pieces, fired in the kiln. We will work on plaster based positives placed in the bottom of a refractory ‘box’ to create reverse relief effects in the glass. Glass is fired so that it flows over the forms and create a solid cast block. A deceptively easy way to work with the casting technique or to develop new ideas.
