SEAN HENNESSEY; DEEP RELIEF DRY PLASTER CASTING
Instructor: Sean Hennessey
Sean's work is the real deal! Texture, definition, color, excitement... it's got it all!
He doesn't teach often, so don't miss this opportunity to learn something totally unique in glass. Stand beside this innovator as he shows you how he creates his one-of-a-kind creations. This class is limited in space due to the nature and size of the projects.
In this workshop students encounter an easy, versatile and economical way to create bas relief and deep relief kiln formed glass. Using found objects and fabricated forms, you will press the originals into plaster powder, creating backgrounds and foregrounds, and slumping sheet glass into the molds. Participants will explore a number of options for adding color, including both in the firing process and post-fire. This incredible, virtually waste-free casting technique has endless fine art, public art and architectural applications.
Sean Hennessey lives in Baltimore, Maryland and is a mixed media sculptor, primarily working with glass. A graduate of Berea College, he spent 10 years working in professional theatre as a painter, carpenter, welder and sculptor. In 2015, he founded Otis Street Arts Project, a studio center and gallery just outside of Washington, D.C.
