GLSS 212 - Introduction to Contemporary Glass Practice / Kiln Forming
GLSS 212 is a studio-based course designed to introduce students to the processes of modeling, casting, and fabrication technologies as they apply to contemporary glass practice. The first half of this course will emphasize the development of an understanding of the medium through topical explorations. Learning will occur through projects, which encourage the development conceptual approaches to the material, while exploring the material properties and processes of kiln formed and cold worked glass fabrication. The student in the second portion of the course will then follow a more personal direction, developing a limited range of techniques to a specific purpose. Working strategies and conceptual approaches to glass practice will be introduced in this course through discussions, demonstrations, lectures and projects.
NOTE: This course is a co-requisite for all Glass Majors and must be taken in the same semester as GLSS 210.
Completion of 24 credits from First Year Studies or equivalents or consent of the Chair in consultation with the instructor. COREQUISITE: GLSS 210
