Three-Way Hot Glass
with Kt Yun
Introduction to Hot Glass

A unique class exploring the properties of this incredible molten material and employing three ways to form it blowing & shaping, 2.mould blowing and 3. sand-casting. We will start by gathering hot molten glass from the pot and learn how it can be shaped with breath and sculpted with tools into a variety of forms. We will then have a go at mould blowing and finish the day by pouring hot glass into moulded sand - sand casting.

Students will make a flower sculpture, a tumbler, a mould blown vase and finish with a couple of sand casts.

Items to make:
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.
