All Levels
Two-Week Session

Emma Varga will introduce you to her method of fusing and casting multiple layers of glass, which she has been exploring and developing for many years. This innovative technique enables fusing/casting of thin glass sheets used to set up layers composed of tiny, mosaic-like elements. Through this technique, you will create three-dimensional images inside the transparent fused/cast sculptural object.

This course will focus on a new way of three-dimensional thinking, using properties of glass to achieve visual effects, and achieving a sense of movement within cast glass objects. Additionally, students will receive basic information about cold working, and will discover an exciting new method of creating images within transparent three-dimensional glass objects. No prior glassworking experience is necessary; all levels are welcome.
