Explore physical and conceptual issues of surface and sub-surface in kiln-glass in this master workshop with renowned glass artist Richard Parrish!

Bas relief is found in the art and architecture of all cultures and has existed for thousands of years. It is a kind of carving of sculpture in which the figures are raised or depressed slightly forming a flat background to give a three-dimensional effect. Subtle changes in the levels of surface and the interplay of light and shadow on the planes enable the viewer to see and appreciate the composition.

Discover the rich possibilities of working in bas relief using simple materials such as fiber paper to create complex forms, shapes, and textures. Intricate surface relief, texture, color, and light interactions are possible in “shallow space”.

Coldworking techniques remove layers and expose that which is below the surface. Students will work primarily with ceramic fiber materials, sheet glass, and frits and powders to create individually conceived projects in bas relief. Exercises will help participants identify their individual interests and ideas to create a final piece.

Richard has taught architecture and design at The University of Michigan and Montana State University. He teaches classes in kiln-glass internationally, focusing on the visual elements of design; color theory; and inspiration, meaning and intent.

Richard’s glasswork includes speculative work; functional objects; and architectural installations and design elements.
