Summer Course : Kiln Forming - Miguel Unson


Aug 7-16, 2018 At the Ceramics and Glass Dept.

Miguel Unson draws inspiration from archaeological ambiguity and delightful chaos. He found his voice in glass having completed a Masters Degree in design from Pratt Institute in New York. He has taught at UrbanGlass, Pittsburgh Glass Center, Bullseye Glass Company, and Pilchuck Glass School. Unson lives among glassmakers in the Pacific Northwest of the United States, where he continues to develop new forms of expression by manipulating historical techniques.
This workshop will use familiar kilnforming materials in a very unconventional manner. Developing new ways of thinking will take precedence over any single technique. Topics will include: casting thick pieces for pattern formation, coldworking and cutting components, designing for multiple firings, applying gravity to create movement, and taking controlled risks for unpredictable outcomes.
