Bas Relief Glass Bowl :: January 6 2024 Saturday
Bas Relief Meaning and how the name came about:
The best way to understand the meaning of bas-relief is to see one—and the easiest way to do that is to look at a penny, nickel, or other coin and examine the raised images on it; they're all bas-reliefs. English speakers adopted bas-relief from French (where bas means "low" and Relief means "raised work") during the mid-1600s; earlier, we borrowed the synonymous Basso-Relievo from Italian.
The French and Italian terms have common ancestors (and, in fact, the French word is likely a translation of the Italian), but English speakers apparently borrowed the two independently. Bas-relief is more prevalent in English today, although the Italian-derived term has not disappeared completely from the language.
This workshop will have three different ways to create Bas Relief into the glass designs. Think outside the box when creating your own textures and always keep a box of mark making tools handy in the studio. I have a box that has a tree branch, screen, utensils, ribbons, sea shells..... You get my point. Start your treasure box today. ;)
You will create one small plate or bowl with texture. You will learn how to score and cut glass into strips, including the chemistry of glass, firing temperatures and how glass behaves under heat. This is a one day class with pick up of projects at a later date due to firing the glass in the kiln takes 50 hours total. This workshop is for beginners who have never worked with glass before.
Classes are on average 2-3 hours depending on the students interaction.
Class fee is $97 plus materials fee $40 Total $137.00
