The course lasted 19 days (that included a field trip and final exhibition) and there were 10 students. I gave presentations and/or specific instruction each morning. Students were required to put in a minimum of fifteen additional hours per week on their own time.
The assignment was to design a stained glass panel using one or two regular convex polygons that fitted together to form a two or three-dimensional tiling pattern plus a border that could be of various shapes. Each piece of glass was to be fired at least twice and the decoration of the prototile/s should repeat.
Aglaia Ho put together a series of slides that logged her process, from early geometry to sculptural soldering. Watch here
Each student started from scratch with no prior experience. They learned how to cut glass; carve stamps from lino; paint and print on glass with a variety of tools; to copper foil, assemble and solder; and to frame their panels with zinc. Students worked as a team to hang their exhibition, make posters, art cards, and publicize the event.
