Class Description

Silvia Levenson is a world celebrated Bullseye glass artist she has a wealth of casting knowledge and teaching experience. Silvia’s workshops are always a fantastic, an excellent opportunity to develop your own artistic direction and find your creative voice under the guidance of one of the glass art world’s most inspiring and endearing artists and mentors.  A class not to be missed.

Glass is particularly interesting as a sculptural medium because its surface extends inwards: we can see both the exterior and the interior of the material. As such, we can create a powerful relationship between the texture of the outer surface, imagery within the material, and the overall shape of a given object. Students in this workshop will explore how to embed photographs, drawings and text in kiln cast glass. Methods used will include image transfer with decals and screen printing, mould making and firing open-faced kiln castings. Silvia will guide students in how to create a meaningful synthesis of these opportunities through lectures, demonstration, and discussion.
