MAKING IDEAS VISIBLE

June 18 – 29 2019

Kilncasting, Imagery, Lost-Wax Casting, Printmaking

Working with molds and exploring kiln and lost-wax casting, experimental printings, and coldworking, students in this course will work to create an installation combining glass, printings, and found objects. This course will explore printing on glass using sunlight printings, photo emulsions, and linocut printings to be able to convey students’ visions. Through rigorous personal reflection and inquiry, students will utilize lectures, visiting artists, and dialogues around contemporary art to develop and make visible their own intuitions and ideas.

PÂTE DE VERRE

WITH SILVIA LEVENSON

19/08 → 26/08 2019

PLe verre permet de voir à la fois l’extérieur et l’intérieur de la sculpture. Il permet de créer une relation entre la texture de la surface, les images dans le matériau et la forme générale d’un objet. Vous intégrerez des photographies, des dessins et du texte dans le verre et découvrirez les techniques du transfert d’images, ainsi que la fabrication des moules et la cuisson au four à ciel ouvert.

Glass enables us to see both the exterior and the interior of a sculpted form. It enables us to create a relationship between the texture of the outer surface, imagery within the material, and the overall form of a given object. You’ll learn how to embed photographs, drawings as well as discovering the techniques enabling you to transfer images, mould-making and firing open-faced kiln-casting.
