This course introduces kiln casting processes and cold finishing techniques in glass for creative visual outcomes. Course projects introduce thematic ideas interwoven with technical processes. Projects are aimed at developing student's ability to work the material as well as reflect and develop concepts into their working method. The course is designed to accommodate learning for students with different levels of experience. Lectures and group discussions assist students to locate their experimental methods within the broader field of craft, design and visual arts practice.
