FUSING EXPLORER: METAL INCLUSIONS
with Katrina Beattie
 
Fusing with metal inclusions
 
COURSE OUTLINE
Explore the art of metal inclusions in glass.  Encase metal foil/leaf and wire in between and on top of layers of glass to encapsulate intriguing and sometimes unpredictable results.  Katrina will advise you on how to bend and form the metal, sharing with you a few of her creative tricks.  During the day you will design and make several experimental test pieces, and a 20cm hanging glass panel full of inclusions. Students will learn about the possibilities and limits of inclusions, both discussion groups and making.   Much of the day will be spent creating and forming intricate inclusions that will then be put in the kiln to fuse overnight.
 
TUTOR PROFILE - KATRINA BEATTIE
Katrina has a fascination with kiln forming processes, and this has inspired her to push boundaries challenging the use of glass as a vessel which is normally a solid form. Much of her work is inspired by a glass blowing technique called ‘Reticello’. This ancient Venetian technique generally has a mesh of white glass threads interwoven to from a grid where small bubbles form in the gaps. Katrina has exhibited widely throughout the UK, attended masterclasses at PIlchuck, U.S.A with Randy Walker, and has attended the Bullseye Glass Educators Forum at Northlands Glass.
