Sand casting is a process
that is thousands of years old, known best in themetal working industry.
Glassmakers have taken this knowledge and applied it to the hot casting
process. One of the major benefits of this process is the immediacy and ease of
manipulating the molds, including spontaneity and adding undercuts. This workshop
will focus on these aspects. We will be constructing molds from styrofoam and
using ready made objects. We will discuss the process from making of molds, the
preparation of the sand, ladling of glass and annealing. In addition to the
technical aspects there will be lectures, demonstrations, and slide shows on
the aesthetics of cast glass and its implications as object and architectural
elements. Open to all, no experience is necessary. Click here to register!
