Kelley Knickerbocker
'Radical Dimensions in Glass' 
...Visiting Artist Series...
 


 Choose either Phoenix or Tucson
$350 + $50 materials/pp
Hurry, don't miss this opportunity...Registration closes 1/31/15

Fun, fast-paced combination of lecture/slideshow, cutting/setting demos, and lots of hands-on
practice, students will learn to confidently execute two "extreme sport" variations of
ungrouted glass-on-glass mosaic: 
Flat Stacking, in which differing opacities of stained glass are adhered in layers to a mirror substrate to explore the luminous light diffusion, color blending and unique 3-D background/foreground effect only layers can produce; Edge Stacking, in which stained glass strips of diverse heights/lengths are stacked on edge to showcase the light-handling properties of the riven edge and to create dramatic dimensional contrasts with surrounding elements. In addition, we will investigate the benefits of combining glass with contrasting materials. Students will learn to cut and set an unglazed porcelain background to complement their stacked glass mosaic elements.

 Additional topics covered: designing for these techniques, efficient cutting and setting tips for both glass and porcelain, an intro to UV-curing adhesives, using mirror as a substrate, framing, and appropriate adhesives, tools, and applications. All materials will be provided, but students are welcome to supplement provided glass with glass from their own inventories if they wish. 

Basic proficiency with a standard glass cutter and straight edge is critical to getting the most out of this workshop...
here's a tip... practice on a piece of window glass with a glass cutter and straight edge & running pliers before class. The tools are easily obtained at your local stained glass supply or online..we will have the Moreton Cutting System to help you, so-we'll have you covered...See more of Kelley's work or register with the links below.
