Upcycled Glass: Introducing Warm Glass - CAEL5042

Year - 2020

This unit of study examines conceptual and practical applications of up-cycled and found glass through contemporary art and design. Your understanding of the ubiquity of glass and its reuse in various guises will be developed through a self directed research projects and presentation of your findings. Technical introductions using found and recycled glass allow you to traverse a raft of reductive and manipulative processes, including: diamond cutting, polishing, lathe-working, engraving and joining. Your projects will combine critical and practical skills learned to the development and realisation of artistic works. You may decide to work exclusively within the medium of glass or in conjunction with other media and processes as required.
