Through the use of screen printing techniques, stencils and drawing with glass powders,  we will be creating thin wafer like images that will be incorporated into backgrounds of various means.   Fractured pieces will be used as a backdrop as well as being sliced and incorporated into other designs, both sculptural and practical.  Basic screen printing techniques will be used to create various types of imagery to embellish to samples made in class.

The techniques learned in this workshop will allow you to work as abstract or realistic as you want. Using different glass elements (glass powders, frits, stringers, enamels, and various unconventional tools) allows you to create shading, texture, and other design elements that become encapsulated within and on the surface of the piece. It is a celebration of the transparency, color and vibrancy that only glass as a medium can capture.

We will be building a palette of techniques that allows a wide range of fissure and fracture variations, designing with Powder printed elements, creating 1mm thick imagery pieces that will be incorporated into wall hung pieces.  One of the larger compositions will be developed by cutting and re-assembling patterned and colored parts into a final collaged piece or cast work.
