Super pumped about sharing some techniques I have been developing toward creating intricate glass castings with great surface detail during this workshop at the fantastic Pittsburgh Glass Center!!! More information can be found at: https://www.pittsburghglasscenter.org/classes/glass-taxidermy
In this one-week intensive, we will be finding solutions to translate an array of natural forms and textures into glass, looking to conserve the finest detail and surface possible. Demonstrations will cover mold making and wax sculpting techniques that focus on the mold being the starting point to create an endless array of compositions. Investment solutions will include complex and thin forms, as well as specialized coldworking techniques.
