This course introduces students to fundamental skills and contextual knowledge for working with kiln formed glass in a contemporary visual arts and/or design context.


Students will learn skills and methods for cutting, fusing, and shaping glass in response to set projects. Transforming glass with heat and cold processes will be the key skills introduced along with strategies to explore and realise creative works. Students will also develop knowledge of historical underpinnings for glass in contemporary practices through lectures, seminar discussions, and contextual research. This course supports materials and ideas explorations through the interface of embodied learning and conceptual inquiry. It forms part of the foundation for a specialist glass practice, while supporting non-specialist explorations of the properties and possibilities for the medium in broader visual arts and design contexts. Work health and safety (WHS) instruction is integrated throughout the syllabus.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. competently utilise a range of kiln forming glass working skills and technologies in response to projects;
  2. explore materials and techniques through speculative process enquiry;
  3. reflectively investigate the relationships between concepts and processes; and
  4. engage with the historical and theoretical contexts relevant to kiln formed glass projects.
