CAEL2076: Upcycled Glass: Introducing Warm Glass

This unit examines conceptual and practical applications of fused glass through contemporary art and design. In studio based research projects and contextual presentations you will develop your understanding of the role of glass as an everyday and cultural material that can be fused together to produce new forms and creative narratives. You will explore a variety of processes, including: diamond cutting, polishing, lathe-working, engraving and hot and cold glass joining. You will select a range of studio projects that combine sustainable, critical and practical skills to develop and realise creative works. You can work exclusively with glass or with other media and creative processes.
