Bullseye Videos: Artists at Work - Miguel Unson

Bullseye Videos: Artists at Work - Miguel Unson

In this lesson, artist Miguel Unson demonstrates his signature “Zen Organico” approach: glass stringers placed vertically in a bed of frit are allowed to melt, fall, and transform themselves at will, representing a playful balance between chaos and control. And thanks to Bullseye’s specially-equipped kiln, you will see the entire process unfold. Unson describes the various steps in the process including preparation, composition, material selection, and firing considerations.
