Glass and Clay workshop at Arrowmont

Meagan Chaney Gumpert - Monday, August 29, 2011
Just got back from another amazing week at ArrowmontSchool of Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, TN. Possibly the best workshop I've had yet! Everyone had such a positive attitude and Bill May, the new director, has brought great energy to the campus. They have some exciting things planned for the future of Arrowmont, so keep an eye out.
We worked on 2 main clay and class projects. One that incorporated fused and slumped glass into the "window" of a low-fire, slab-built form. The other project was also slab-built but this one incorporating kiln cast glass. These techniques can be adapted to any clay and cone firing range and we talked about that as well. I uploaded a bunch of photos to my Facebook page, so pop on over and follow me there.
Most of the photos are compliments of Sandy Batts, one of my talented students. Thanks for taking photos all week Sandy!
And it looks like I'll be heading back next summer to teach a similar workshop. Whoohoo! Stay tuned as we work out the details.
