KILN CASTING MASTERCLASS
with Fiaz Elson
 
Pierce by Fiaz Elson
 
COURSE OUTLINE:
Students on this course will focus on the interior space and colour processes involved in kiln casting. At the start of this 4 day course students will have a unique opportunity to make their own coloured billets in the hot shop, which will then be used to fill the interior space of refactory moulds. Movement will be created as veils and streaks of colour with the addition of block, grits and powders. Well known for her beautiful use of colour in cast sculpture, Fiaz will encourage students to experiment and find their own personal expressions in colour. An inventive and experimental course - making colour, moulds, casts and experiments alongside demos and tutorials.
 
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.
