MATTHEW SZÖSZ: FLEXIBLE FUSINGS
Glass Fusing Masterclass with Matthew Szösz
 
Matthew Szosz - Fused Glass
 
COURSE OUTLINE

This class will focus on using the fusing kiln as platform for free form shaping of warm glass. Students in this class will build flexible, inflatable, and expandable fusings that can be brought out of the kiln to be worked in three dimensions. Students will learn methods and techniques for assembling fusible structures in flat glass, and bringing those structures to a working point from which they can be manipulated either inside or outside the kiln. Students will also be encouraged to develop their own methods for the manipulation of warm glass, and for construction and assembly of created parts in the hotshop.

This will expand skill sets and possibilities in radical new ways, and open whole new areas for artist/ student exploration.
