Instructor: Nancy Weisser

Do you love abstract work but just don't know where to start to achieve the best contrast and movement? If so, this is your workshop!! In this class you learn ways to capture the magic and movement of fluid glass in the solid glass form. Moving beyond controlled linear patterns, students will explore special effects that can be achieved inside the kiln using heat and gravity to produce remarkable visual outcomes. Students will learn strategies for capturing the organic movement of glass and methods of forming elements to create interesting design. Also covered are methods for constructing containment systems for various shapes, and how to calculate how much glass is needed to fill those spaces. Firing schedules for all techniques will be reviewed, and finishing options will be demonstrated. Students will have the option to practice these techniques and more!
