Class Info pdf:Sculpting the Void – A New Approach to Lost Wax Casting
In this class students will learn each step in the process through a “hands on approach”. We will make small objects in wax that will be used to follow through each step in the process from mold making, through kiln firing and annealing. The concept for this class is to cover all aspects of glass casting so that the participants will be able to continue working on their own. I am excited to offer this class and share what I have found to be an interesting way to create cast glass objects. I would encourage people who are interested in finding a new way to approach glass casting to consider taking this class. No previous glass casting experience is required.
I have spent several years developing a technique to create forms in wax using wet clay as a mold. Images are made by pressing objects into the clay and then pouring the melted wax into the void. I believe this technique as a lot of potential to produce interesting forms and textures for pieces that can be cast in glass.
