This course focuses on the integration of Design-based concepts and processes in advanced hot glass working and finishing. Demonstrations and course assignments introduce advanced hot glass techniques, from Venetian techniques to hot blow moulds; trouble-shooting methods and experimental approaches to working with hot glass. This course explores the potential of hot shop processes to inform design applications, small series, and team production. Lectures and group discussions expend students' knowledge of hot glass applications in contemporary practices in the fields of craft and design. Occupational health and safety instruction is integrated throughout the syllabus.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Competently utilise a range of intermediate and advanced glass blowing and finishing skills in response to design based tasks and self directed projects
- Experiment with the application of concepts and processes towards design based outcomes
- Demonstrate an analytical approach to conceptualizing design based solutions for realization in the hot shop
- Critically engage with relevant historical and theoretical contexts as introduced through integrated glass studio theory
Indicative AssessmentPortfolio of studio work (80%) [LO 1, 2, 3]
and Journal/Documentation/Studio Theory presentation (20%) [LO 3, 4].
Feedback on work in progress is provided during class and at mid semester review session. Final assessment will be based on presented completed works, journals, tests and models.
The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
Workload4 hours per week supervised studio practice includes hands on instruction, lectures and group discussion. 6 hours per week independent studio practice includes a minimum of 1 (3 hour) self-directed hot shop session, shared with blowing partner.
