Lucky enough to be at the Pilchuck Glass School, an international center for glass art education based in Stanwood, Washingto, and nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains amidst a working tree farm.
The class with Susan Stinsmuehlen-Amend is to learn about painting in the transparent space of glass.
PAINTING IN THE TRANSPARENT SPACE OF GLASS
Enamel, Painting, Imagery, Kiln Firing
In this course, we use vitreous enamels to apply images on two and three-dimensional glass with an emphasis on expanding dimensional space by layering between the front, back, and in-between spaces. We combine and contrast personal iconography with ideas from contemporary art and culture using a variety of mark-making techniques such as glass painting, photo-resist sandblasting, etching cream, drawing with diamond bits, photo decals, and more.
