Bullseye Roll-Up Class

>





Kilncast glass got the blown glass treatment in the roll-up class this past weekend. The class explored the innovative glass working method often referred to as “the Australian Roll-Up” – a technique that allows the artist to blow 3-dimensional forms without the necessity of a furnace and allows for an extended time for focused design of the patterning, as compared to the faster pace required for traditional hot glass.

This class combined working on both the
Washington Glass School and at DC GlassWorks allowing for a fun cross-pollination of ideas and techniques.
