Collage/ Montage: Focus on Frit
This class takes place at OATKA School of Glass in Batavia, New York. September 21-25, 2012
The class will be of interest to artists such as printmakers and painters or anyone for whom visual expression in glass is desired. The class will expand on some of the processes introduced in the"Glass Onion". While this class is a natural follow-on to it's predecessor, it is power-packed on it's own and has no prerequisite.
Students will be introduced to expressive and painterly kilnforming techniques using an extensive palette of frit and powder to enable glass designs with brilliant color, rich surfaces and depth. Working with Bullseye glass, frit, powder, and multiple-firing processes, students will create pre-fired design elements to be used in subsequent glass projects, combined with other glass techniques and/or adapted to other media. Topics to be covered may include:
- line, shading and contrast
- depth and layering strategies
- opacity and transparency
- concepts of color, composition, and design
