Introduction to Stencils and Sandblasting in Hot Glass
with KT Yun
Sandblasting fused and blown glass
A one day course focusing on imagery and detailing of colour onto the 3 dimensional surface of a glass blown vessel. In the morning you will have the opportunity to blow your own piece of 'flash' (additional layer of colour) glass. You will then be introduced to the sandblaster and will create your own stencil designs to use as a resist. After sandblasting through your stencils onto pre-made glass 'eggs' you will then heat them up and blow into a vessel. We will also look at the art of rolling molten glass onto glass powders to pick up a design.
KT uses hot glass as her chosen artistic material and is passionate about the process as well as the product, using traditional techniques and merging them into contemporary styling - producing unique and graphic imagery. Her creations investigate the fluidity and possibilities of glass in its liquid form. KT has travelled and worked in many glass factories and studios throughout Europe, including Philip Baldwin and Monica Guggisberg, Lino Tagliapietra and Dale Chihuly. She was an original founder of the Liquid Glass Centre, but has more recently worked with glassblower Sonja Klingler. KT is a co-director of Minimelt Glass, producing small mobile glass blowing furnaces, and co-director of The Glass Hub.
