Medium as Metaphor: Hot Glass for the Artist

Romina Gonzales

The purpose of this introductory workshop is to create a platform for artists to understand the basics of molten glass and utilize it as a medium for artistic expression. Through group experiments and demonstrations, we will analyze the characteristics and behavior of glass from an aesthetic perspective, working towards developing conceptual ideas. We will focus on the performative qualities of the process as opposed to the final object. Our actions will materialize in the form of impermanent artwork, documented through video and photography. The objects made will be a print of our ephemeral experience. This class is open to beginner and intermediate students. Coming with ideas and areas of interest to explore is highly encouraged.
