Master Class - Kiln Cast Glass Master Mold Making
Take kiln-forming into the third dimension by exploring the many ways to create glass within a mold. Students will have hands-on experience with silica/plaster molds including open faced, reversed carved, lost wax, pate de verre and multi-part forms.
Flexible materials and commercial molds will be explored to create multiples from the same positive. Structural reinforcements using wire and fiberglass will be demonstrated for enhanced strength. The use of cullet and billets as well as kiln loading and firing will be integral to this session. Coldworking and post-firing cleanup will be demonstrated as well as kiln firing of the completed sculpture to finish the work with a fire polished surface.
