Advanced Glass Concepts: Casting

Course No. GLS 240-340-440  Credits: 3.0

This course aims at advancing students' knowledge and techniques in creative and intellectual ways as well as fostering new conceptual schemes. Students will be introduced to such methods as sand casting, Pate-de-verre, cold working and kiln casting in the course of pursuing their sculptural goals. In the meantime, students will also practice applying problem-solving skills to making art. By the end of this course, students will have a thorough knowledge and understanding of general kiln forming and acquire more advanced casting techniques. Ultimately, with this technical basis, the course will inspire students to shape and realize an individual visual voice. Hot glass will be possibly conducted as complement. Open to all students with one semester of glass. Course fee required. Pre-requisite: One semester of Glass.
