Class Info: Corallite Creations: Forming with Powder, Molds, and Flame

This class is typically taught in 2 parts, but for the first time, Nikki will be combining both classes into this special 5 day workshop.  Nikki will reveal her methods of layering and manipulating dry powder to create organic forms suggestive of underwater sea life.

In the first day of the workshop you will gain an understanding of how heat and surface tension work together with powder placement resulting in coral-like structure. The effects achieved are highly dependent on several variables that will be discussed and taught in class.

For the remainder of the class, students will build on the each previous technique learned. The goal is to make multi-component sculptural vessels and glass jewelry that suggest the rich colors and forms of coral reef creatures. Students will further explore dry and wet powder techniques, using them to create open spaces and fissures for large and small pieces. Flame worked components made from stringers and glass strips will be strategically fired and slumped to make new anemone-like forms. 

Everything you need to know about firing, finishing, and hanging your pieces will be covered in this class.  Students will then learn to assemble their component creations to design uniquely interesting, beautiful, and colorful imaginary sea life sculptures!
