KILN MASTERCLASS: WORKING WITH INTENT
with Jane Bruce
 
Prime Numbers - Kiln cast glass by Jane Bruce
 
COURSE OUTLINE:

This class is for those who wish to explore and develop an individual approach to design and making. Although a range of practical techniques will be covered, the primary emphasis of the class will be on exploring ways of developing ideas and making, not on finished products. Utilizing creative exercises, drawing, model making, as well as kiln and cold working techniques, students will experiment, combine processes, and prepare tests and prototypes that may serve as starting points for new work or help to clarify current work.  Hands-on workshop time will be complemented by group discussions and presentations on historical and contemporary glass.

 
FURTHER INFORMATION:

This class will challenge participants to step out of the predictable and re-look at the potential of kiln-formed glass and their way of working. Although this class will cover a range of practical techniques, the primary emphasis will be on exploring the process of developing ideas and making, not on finished products. Utilizing creative exercises, drawing, model making, and the techniques of kiln forming and cold working, students will experiment, combine processes, and prepare tests and prototypes that may serve as starting points for further development or help to clarify current work.

The first part of the class will involve each student giving a 15-minute presentation on his or her work using images of current and previous work that typifies what they make. Those presentations will be followed by discussions involving the instructors and the group. These discussions will be related to each individual artist's work and will attempt to focus on their concerns. Following the individual presentations and discussions, we will discuss various ways of thinking about glass; it's history, form and function and some of the directions available to us as artists.

Moving into the workshop, and by utilizing drawing, visual exercises, model making, kiln forming and cold working techniques, students will experiment, combine processes, and prepare tests and prototypes to further explore the nature of glass, creativity and the evolution of their ideas, leading to the development of new work or helping to clarify current work. Hands-on workshop time will be complemented by individual attention, group discussions, and presentations on historical and contemporary glass, and each student will be asked to share their knowledge, ideas and experience by participating in an individual 15-minute presentation.
