Casting Glass

Kiln Casting is an easy way to manipulate solid glass into almost any shape, usually working with plaster molds. Molds are made and then loaded with small bits of glass that become molten and fill the mold.

Participants will explore more intricate and complex forms to cast in glass on planning and different molding materials, including plaster, silica and flexible mold materials (such as silicone and alginate). Molds of objects (found or fabricated) will be made for casting multiples in wax, which can also be utilized for fabrication and carving.
