In this class you will learn how to make fully sculptural cast glass objects using the lost wax process. Steps in the process include creating a refractory mold around a wax model, steaming out the wax, calculating the amount of glass needed to fill the mold, curing the mold, and firing the work in the kiln. You will complete this process twice: first with a wax model we provide and then with a wax model you will build in class. Finishing methods will also be covered, including how to safely remove mold material from fired glass and how to alter fired surfaces using coldworking techniques. There are no prerequisites, though a background in ceramics or 3D modeling is helpful. Cost: $650.00 When: July 17-21, 2013 Time: Wednesday-Sunday 10am-5pm Max. Attendees: 8
