New Class – Just Added! Mirroring on Glass

Through The Looking Glass

If you have ever gazed into a mirror and wondered how exactly does a sheet of glass become such a stunning reflective surface, then I invite you to journey down the rabbit hole into the seductive world of mirrored glass. This class will demystify the mirroring process without losing any of the magic, allowing each student the opportunity to create their own mirrored object.  This two-day workshop will cover some simple chemistry, glass preparation and handling, chemical application and teamwork.

Flat glass will be available, however feel free to bring a small clear or transparent colored glass vessel such as a bottle, vase or dish, the cleaner the better. On the other hand – please bring clothes to get dirty in because the chemicals can be quite messy!  See you on the other side of the looking glass! 
Our instructor is supastar Evan Morgan – he’s come back to DC teach this special class. Evan was born and raised in Hawaii but is now living outside of Athens, GA. Evan graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) with a BFA in sculpture. He was raised around the arts and by sixteen he was helping build glass shops on the outer islands with his stepfather Hugh Jenkins. Glass became not only a passion but a challenge, Evan continued to blow glass through out high school, exhibiting in Hawaii Craftsmen by 1999.

Apply for 2014 Stephen Procter Fellowship in Glass

The Stephen Procter Fellowship was established in 2001 in memory of Stephen Procter, Head of the Glass Workshop at The Australian National University 1993–2000. The aim of the Fellowship is to assist international and Australian artists working in glass to work/study abroad. Travel and the experience of other cultures were very important to Stephen and this Fellowship is intended to be a significant and exciting link between glass communities around the world. The Stephen Procter Fellowship is now open for proposals for 2014.

Each year the Fellowship provides $5,000 (AUD) and a residency (4 to 8 weeks) within the glass workshop at ANU to an artist working with glass. Typically used to assist with the costs associated with overseas travel, the fellowship award aims to support artists with working or educational opportunities significant to their artistic practice. In 2012 this money will be made available for an international artist to travel overseas and take up a residency at the Glass Workshop of the Australian National University in Canberra upon their return. 

Guidelines for International artists: 

  • Travel can commence anytime from the end of February 2014.
  • Applicant should be a practicing artist seeking time to develop their work, undertake research and / or technical experimentation around a specific project as highlighted in their fellowship application proposal.
  • The Fellowship proposal should outline the nature of the intended travel: it should communicate the connections between the overseas activities, the ongoing artist’s practice and the 2014 residency project.
  • The successful applicant will be selected based on artistic merit and the relevance of the fellowship proposal.
  • The residency at the School of Art must take place in 2014. The duration of the residency is 4 to 8 weeks, and must partly take place during the academic teaching period. The dates of the residency will be negotiated with the ANU staff according to the successful project’s time frame.
  • The Fellow will be provided with on-campus accommodation, studio space and scheduled use of equipment to carry out their work. Limited supplies will be provided.
  • The Fellow will be expected to have direct interaction with students through workshops and/or seminars/critiques/tutorials and presentations.

Closing date for applications for the 2014 Fellowship: Monday 2 September 2013
