Hot Shop

Our class this semester is now three hours instead of two. That's great but no one told us (typical). The studio has a new artist in residence Uri Davillier. Marcus who is our Hot shop teacher for this semester wangled us a demo from Uri for our class today.

Of all days to be without my camera! Anyhow the demo was great. A range of unseen techniques (by us first years) were used. A new type of coloured glass from gaffa, the optic mould, frit of 2 colours and grades was used, overlaying colour over a clear bubble...a few of us got to assist which is always instructive. Those of us who take notes managed to keep up for a while and then note books were abandoned for participation or avid observation.

With an hour left, Marcus instructed us on how to make stringers.
