Brazee welcomes visiting artist and instructor Morgan Madison! Join Morgan through this crash course in kilnforming. Vamp up your process and expand your practice in this unique 4-day workshop.
This class will cover techniques Morgan uses to achieve the crisp linear quality and distinctive character of his glass work. Through technical demonstrations and one on one discussion we will explore facets of the process including: developing ideas in the sketchbook, cutting and assembling of glass compositions, basic powder printing and preparation of work for firing. Several different projects will allow students to experiment with these techniques while being challenged to think creatively about concept. Finishing work in the cold shop and strategies for presenting it for display will round out the content. The aim of this class is to give students the tools to pursue their own unique visions efficiently, confidently and to have fun while doing so.
Students must wear closed-toed shoes in the studio.
We cannot offer refunds on cancelled registrations for Visiting Instructor classes.
Morgan Madison is a Pacific Northwest based artist. Growing up in Denver as the middle of 3 brothers he sought early on to find his own niche and discovered it in art. Drawing was his first love and it led him to Lewis and Clark College in Portland, OR where he received a BA in Studio Art. Thereafter, a fateful job in the fiery depths of a glass factory led to his pursuit of glass as a medium. Today, working from his studio in Seattle, he uses a variety of materials and processes to create work that is informed by his love of drawing and inspired by place- the colors, textures, design and landscape which help define the places we live.
