I hope you are all well and working hard as usual!
Please see the following re. Master Class at The Glass Studio Ireland:
A Master Class The Perfect Vessel September 16th 22nd 2010 Class Leader: Karl Harron
Form: ...by which shape is determined, as distinguished from the material of which it is composed, giving it individuality and a distinctive character.
The aim of this 7-day Master Class is to achieve a sublime form. The process is to discard the superfluous and to identify and develop a personal concept. The result will be a form that is the simple expression of a complex thought and students will be encouraged to adopt a sculptural approach to their work - a search for form and push their glass in a new direction rather than master a technique. In order to develop your aesthetic and conceptual perspective, while negotiating the technical challenges of deep-slumping into 3-step ceramic moulds, the beginning will be with pencil and paper, drawing from the immediate environmental stimuli surrounding The Glass Studio with mark-making realised through the application of accessory glasses such as frits, stringers, powders and confetti.
