Pâte-de-Verre / Hot Printing with Anne Petters
Come join us for a five day workshop that will give an introduction to a specific pâte-de-verre technique, inspired by the process of intaglio printing. It allows the direct transfer of hand written text, drawing, color and structure from a mold onto glass. The class will teach basics in mold-making and working with glass powders and frit. Flat plaster-silica molds will be our canvas and print-stock which we will manipulate by carving and other mark making techniques. Starting with flat pate de verre castings that carry our imagery, we will venture into three dimensions by fusing, slumping and manually shaping the hot glass in the kiln. Students will get an introduction to a specific frit making process in the hot shop and learn how to create a firing schedule for the pate-de-verre process. No experience necessary!
Anne Petters (DE), multi-media artist with a strong background in glass art.
