The Upper Crust: Magnificent Surfaces and Compelling Layers for Kilnformed Glass. The surface is the entry to a work of art. It can stop you in your tracks or lead a viewer into the layers below. It’s the part you want to touch. Using unusual applications of Bullseye sheet glass, powder, stringer and frit, in conjunction with multiple firings, you will learn strategies to enable rich textural surfaces and depth for fused glass. Gritty, slick, or robust relief, kilnforming materials and processes afford us exceptional textural and tactile qualities. Utilizing wet and dry powder processes, and combinations of glasses, you will create a variety of surface textures. Through the careful order of firings and observation of the effects of heat work, you will attain and maintain a diversity of desired textures on panel surfaces. Detailed firing schedules and layering strategies will be explored. Color, composition, opacity and transparency will be considered. This highly creative and hands-on course is of interest to kiln glass workers as well as artists of other media.
