Realism-Abstraction: Breaking Down & Zooming In

Realism-Abstraction: Breaking Down & Zooming In

with Kari Minnick (US)

This accessible art class for kiln workers will be of interest to artists such as printmakers and painters or anyone for whom visual expression in glass is desired.

Starting with their own images, photos, clippings, etc., students will examine why certain imagery appeals to them, how to isolate the potency of the image, dissect, vary and ultimately move toward meaningful abstraction.
Through drawings, paper cut outs and/or test pieces, students will plan a series of works and complete a project.

Using Bullseye glass, frit, powder, and stringer, students will be introduced to processes that enable strong composition, rich surfaces and depth. Using multiple-firing processes, students will consider both sides of the glass as well as investigate surface texture.

Skill Level – Prior experience in fusing / casting is advantageous.
