Moldmaking, Kiln Forming, Kilncasting, Printmaking, Digital Applications
Exploring the intersection between positive and negative impressions, this course will combine historic and contemporary moldmaking and printmaking techniques. Translating surface and form into cast-glass printing plates, students will learn the fundamentals of rubber moldmaking, slumping, fusing, and investment casting alongside vitreography and hand printing. Students will identify the benefits of urethane versus silicone rubbers, and build skills using plaster, wax, and plastic components both open-face and in the round.
