A great new class has just been added to the Fall Schedule - Lost Wax Casting! This is a great way to make 3-D elements in kilncast glass. Think of the sculptural possibilities! Our instructor for this class was on Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) faculty as Asst Professor of Glass, and will be teaching at Corning Studio next year. More about Debra Ruzinsky in another posting.
In this class you will make a vessel form in glass using the lost wax process. Students will begin with a pre-made wax form that they will carve into and alter. Students will be asked to research surface decoration ideas for their project before coming to class, then bring the ideas to class in the form of sketches, xeroxes, magazine clippings, etc. Students will make plaster silica molds and steam out wax. Basic finishing techniques will also be explained. No experience necessary - wear work clothing and closed toed shoes.
