On Sunday, May 31st from 2 to 5pm the Washington Glass School will be hosting demonstrations of glass techniques from two artists from the National Glass Centre in Sunderland, England, Stephen Beardsell and Karin Walland. Stephen Beardsell "Lady in Poppy Field".
Karin will show how to cast small objects in frozen glass powder (an alternative to the messy lost wax method). Karin holds a BA in Fine Art and an MA in Glass with distinction. She often incorporates recycled glass creating pieces from jewellery pendants to large sculptural installations expressing fragility, loss, brokenness, death and new life in both nature and human experience.
Karin Wallend "Washed Up At The End of The Day", "Broken Arch"

Currently he works in the glass department at the University of Sunderland and also in the National Glass Centre. Stephen will be showing and describing his method of creating great depth with frit casting and inclusions. Stephen Beardsell "Poppy Field group".
