Workshop Description pdf: Images in Glass: Design & Process
Roger Thomas is a world renowned glass artist whose techniques and style are instantly recognizable. He is well known to students of glass for his varied and unusual fusing techniques with which he creates his art. Roger combines a method of teaching that uses a lecture portion featuring slideshow examples from his own work as well as a hands-on approach.
In this unique workshop students will challenge their preconceived notions about glass, color, and technique and learn to differentiate between the essential and the unnecessary. Roger will discuss and demonstrate his techniques and the philosophy behind his “glass paintings” and each student will create four landscape panels using these varied techniques.
This is an ideal class for the accomplished fuser looking to expand into a more pictorial medium as well as the accomplished painter or draughtsman wishing to expand into fused glass. The prerequisites are either good fusing skills or good painting skills combined with basic fusing experience.
