WORKING IN SHALLOW SPACE: BAS RELIEF IN KILNFORMED GLASS

July 9 - 12, 2020

 

Participants in this class will investigate physical and conceptual issues of surface and subsurface in kiln-glass. It explores the rich possibilities of working in bas relief using simple materials such as fiber paper to create complex forms, shapes and textures. Intricate surface relief, texture, color and light interactions are possible in "shallow space." Subtle changes in the levels of the surface and the interplay of light and shadow on the planes enable us to see and appreciate the composition. Cold working techniques remove layers and expose that which is below the surface.

 

Students will work primarily with ceramic fiber materials, sheet glass and glass frit and powder to create individually conceived projects in bas relief. Exercises will help participants identify individual interests and ideas to create a finished piece. Sketches, models and samples will be used to refine the idea before making the final work.

 

Bas relief is found in the art and architecture of all cultures and has existed for thousands of years.  It is a kind of carving or sculpture in which the figures are raised or depressed slightly from a flat background to give a three-dimensional effect. Subtle changes in the levels of the surface and the interplay of light and shadow on the planes enable us to see and appreciate the composition.
