Reflecting on Kiln-formed Glass


February 4 - 15, 2019
Kiln Working
Two-Week Session

Explore the aesthetics, science, and craft of reflection in kiln–formed glass. Instruction will encompass how to use and modify mirroring kits for personalized effects and meaning. Explore kiln–fusing metals to glass and create mirror and iridized coatings on glass from glass, without fuming. Discussions and exercises will include the aesthetics and design of reflection, light, and space, a layperson’s introduction to glass science and mirror physics, and history of mirrors in culture, science, and art.

Students should have an understanding of fusing and slumping processes, and experience safely working with sheet glass and glass powders.
