Kiln Forming becomes a true adventure when working with Kaiser Lee Board molds and modules. They are reusable countless times and can be used for slumping, draping and castings. Nearly anything you can think of can be realized with KL-board. It is the only tool that enables us to make some of the most unusual glass art objects with surprisingly little effort. KL-board is very versatile and will definitely expand your pallet of kiln worked glass.
Petra Kaiser has taught workshops all over the United States and abroad, you may know her from her popular books, Introduction to Glass Fusing, Fuse It and Glass Forming with the Mold Block System. She specializes in the creating and developing of new forms and products. One of the latest and most challenging techniques is the combination of cast glass elements and fairly thin glass - only 1 to 2 layers thick. Petra will share her ideas and techniques that she has discovered over the past 15 years of kiln forming glass via slide show, samples of her exquisite art work and demonstrations.
In this inspiring two day workshop, students will have a choice of creating projects like floating bowls, freestanding sculptures, clocks and light screens. Petra will guide you through the process of creating your own unique mold or modules from Kaiser Lee Board that can be used over and over again to create a variety of different projects.
Use of tools, materials and firings are included in cost. Projects will be in Wissmach Glass COE 96. Wear comfortable cotton clothing - No open toe shoes or sandals. Morning Danish and beverages will be provided. Please bring a sack lunch
