Masterclass: Form to Fuse with Andrea Spencer
Glass Fusing and Lampworking
 
 
COURSE OUTLINE
Explore the potential of using flameworking techniques to create elements that can be fused to the surface of sheet glass. Over three days you will investigate solid-sculpting, drawing, colour applications, carving/texturing and construction at the torch, and then use these elements in combination with the effect of heat manipulation in the kiln.
 
PROFILE - ANDREA SPENCER

Andrea Spencer graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 1993 with a BA (Hons) in Architectural Glass. Her commissioned art works specialise in innovative applications of glass for the built environment. Her small-scale sculpture and site-specific installations are concept driven, drawing from natural forms to create artworks that carry a personal narrative. Throughout her work she maintains an emphasis on the unique properties of glass, exploiting the intrinsic qualities of transparency, fragility and fluidity inherent within the material through the making process. Andrea ’s work is held in significant public and private collections and has been exhibited in galleries in the UK, USA and China, including the last three British Glass Biennale exhibitions. She has been an artist-in-residence at North Lands Creative Glass (Scotland) and has been a visiting artist at Penland School of Crafts (USA) and Pilchuck Glass School (USA).  Her work has been featured in the Corning Museum of Glass’ New Glass Review (2010).

IMPORTANT! Due to the cooling down processes involved with all glassmaking it is not possible for students to take work home on the day it is made. Work needs to cool slowly in our kilns and may be collected at a later time by arrangement or carefully packaged and posted to you for £20 (Our cost, no more).
