Kiln Casting with Angela Jarman
This class will specialise in creating form and texture with cast glass. It’ll be an intensive and focused look at what’s possible to achieve in a short time. We’ll start with basic clay and wax modelling to achieve results quickly. The emphasis will be on working with wax and moulded textures and translating these models through lost wax casting to explore the qualities of the glass, particularly surface pattern and texture. The class will be fully comprehensive demonstrating every stage of working; however for those with experience, a more detailed approach can be taken with lots of useful hints and tips.
Angela Jarman’s creative ideas as a whole stem from her long interest in biology and the natural world. “I look to many sources for inspiration – animal, vegetable or mineral, but particularly aspects of growth, reproduction and multiplication – all the while trying to retain a sense of ambiguity. I want my work to refer to nature, but to appear unnatural. By repeating and duplicating a specific part of a fruit or flower I am able to build a model or surface texture that is far removed from the original source. I use black glass because I like the way it seems to suck in the light, appears so dense and has such a barren and sinister quality.”

Jarman received a Crafts Council Setting Up Grant in 2002. As well as the Crafts Council Collection, her work is held in other public collections including the Victoria & Albert Museum, London and the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge. Her studio is based in London.
