1 Day Intermediate Course: Sculpting with Colour and Light

Charonne Ruth Glass


In this Intermediate Course we will sculpt models in clay, looking specifically at how to create tapering forms to produce different depths of hue in colour glass. We will also explore texture and ways of building up and carving relief in clay.

In the second half of the day we will hand craft a refractory mold, then consider how to stack colour(s) in your mold to orchestrate the way colours ebb and flow around the form when glass is molten.

Places are limited to 4 students per course, so that everyone will enjoy some individual tuition.
