KILN FORMED GLASS VESSELS with Amanda Simmons
KILN FORMED GLASS VESSELS
28 – 30 March 2014. Cost: £300 (includes course fees, materials and light lunch)
Amanda Simmons will lead a three day introduction to kiln formed glass vessels using the variables that affect slumping with gravity to create ‘drop-out’ vessel forms. Amanda’s focus is very much on colour and depth of design using cameo engraving, and how different colours can be achieved by blending transparent and opaque Bullseye Glasses. There will be presentations throughout the course of the development of Amanda’s work using this technique, challenging the use of colour and cameo engraved work. Amanda will give guideline firing schedules for all projects on the course and suggest starting points for larger projects. Some previous kiln formed glass experience is required.
