Lost wax kiln-casting has an unfair reputation of being complex, messy, risky, and even dangerous! The truth is that some (not all) of those descriptions are true….But that’s what makes it great! Nathan has been using these methods in a confined space for years. Join him in this five day workshop to learn how to exploit the benefits of lost wax kiln-casting, semi-cleanly, in a home studio. This workshop focuses on kiln-casting thin walled, truly functional glass vessels using the lost wax approach to mold making. Students will use Bullseye and Gaffer glasses in class projects that are based on reproducing and embellishing found objects/vessels. Daily activities will include demonstrations, lectures and plenty of hands on work time. All skill levels are welcome but those new to working with their hands should be prepared to be challenged.
