Students were asked to think about how things connect and/or interact. Consider relationships between objects, people, time, places, and organisms. Working, loving, coexisting, functioning relationships, how do these relationships relate to your own lives and your own artwork?
At this point we had explored many areas of cold/preformed glass and how to work with it. Techniques include: Cutting, enamels, sandblasting, gluing, reshaping/sculpting and polishing.
Students were required to utilize at least 2 of the cold glass construction techniques above to explore the idea of relationship(s).
Mixed Media was introduced to the project (ie not everything needed to be glass) The only stipulation is that students must “repurpose” the glass that they are using. Limitations, students may not use/repurpose an earlier glass project from this course. Glass should be found, given or collected by the student.
