Kiln Casting

In this four day intensive workshop combine sculpting and building molds with the heat of the kiln to manipulate glass and create stunning glass cast sculptures! Explore the art of Kiln Casting through the creation of one or two small to medium sized three dimensional objects. Learn how to work with mold making materials for use in the lost wax casting process and then transform them into glass replicas of the models. This class will cover constructing models, making refractory molds, preparing the glass, firing the molds in kilns and in a fifth “breakout” session  resolving castings into finished works of art.
