COLDWORKING AND FINISHING
with Fiaz Elson
 
Glass Coldworking Course
 
COURSE OUTLINE:
Students that are keen to finish off pieces of cast work, (perhaps those that have been on former casting classes) now have the opportunity to learn some of these specialised techniques, to turn pieces of glass into works of Art.  Under the watchful eye of Fiaz, you will learn how to safely use the machines and cut, grind and polish your glass.  An essential part of the casting technique, this class will teach you the fundamentals, leaving you confident with both skills and machinery.
 
TUTOR PROFILE - FIAZ ELSON:
Fiaz Elson is one of the most highly regarded kiln casters in the UK. She originally trained in design, and made the transition to working with glass in 1998 when she attended the undergraduate glass course at Staffordshire University. Since then she has established herself as one of the UK’s most original glass artists. Her work has been exhibited in New York, Switzerland and widely throughout Britain. Fiaz’s work displays a mastery of the casting process, but also a command of polishing effects. Her pieces express a relationship between the interior and exterior structure, bending, distorting and refracting light, creating a dynamic energy between colour and form.
