Winter Workshop glass cooking now! - 20th Jun 2012

The crew of Winter 2012

Students return to the lure of cast glass

As usual it was an excited crew that turned up for the Winter 2012 course. We had 5 new students, 1 from Auckland, 1 from Te Puke, 2 all the way from Wellington and 1 local. Three students from the greater Waikato came back to learn more after having done their first courses with Di in 2008, and 1 student came straight back after doing the Summer 2012 Workshop.

Cast glass forms - always variety

Di says "It never ceases to amaze me that every course, sees every student make something completely different".  We had some great ideas this time.  Inspired by nature we had a nikau palm, rock formation and a landscape.  Then art forms such as stone henge, and an interpretation of Urenuku and dress inspired by WOW, and Chinese calligraphy on a wall plaque. And lastly a faceted gem stone cast in sapphire glass.

Kiln full, controller on...and now we wait

The students will return on the 14th of July for the great unveiling and the last day spent grinding and polishing the glass forms.  View photos of the course.
