You’ll learn how to make a silicone rubber mold of your original artwork and objects. From the rubber mold, you’ll make a wax impression, which will be invested and steamed to recover the wax and prepare the investment mold for filling with glass during the firing and annealing process.
Lost wax kiln casting is completely accessible to even the first timer – following the steps will result in successful glass castings. Period. Instructor Milon Townsend has been teaching kiln casting at the Corning Museum of Glass for the past 6 years, as well as in workshops and classes around the country. He is the author of dozens of articles on the process, and brings a depth of knowledge that will help you to create the artwork you can dream of.
You should bring several objects that will fit into a 3” cube – from these you’ll make your first molds and castings.
