Upcycled Glass: Introducing Warm Glass - CAEL2076

Year - 2020

This unit of study examines conceptual and practical applications of up-cycled and found glass through contemporary art and design. The unit develops your understanding of the ubiquity of glass and its reuse in various guises through small research projects and student presentations. Using found and recycled glass, students will explore a variety of processes, including: diamond cutting, polishing, lathe-working, engraving and joining. You will select from a range of sustainably themed projects that combine critical and practical skills to develop and realise creative works. You may work exclusively with glass or in conjunction with other media and processes.
