Imagery and Glass Course Update

The last 2 weeks in my Imagery and Glass course have been a blast. We have been working with enamels, rayzist, and silk-screening. Loo Bain (recent MFA graduate in fibers) was amazing in guiding us through the silk-screening process. Also we have done experimental slumping and just received new bullseye slumping molds to play with. Next week we will be experimenting with using a flat scanner on 3-D glass objects- I love this project, check out the examples below of previous student scanned images.

Laser Engraving on glass

We are very excited for 2 new additions to our Digital Fabrication Studio, a laser cutter and ceramic decal printer. This studio also gives students access to several 3D printers, 3D scanning, vinyl cutting and a ten-needle embroidery machine. The experimenting has begun in my imagery and glass course and by Senior Susie Sewell. Click here to see it in action.
