Joy Fire | Foil, Glass, and Metal: Linking multiple materials and repurposing techniques
I began working with stained glass to play with color, which my primary medium of steel does not readily offer. Realizing the materials were more similar than I thought, I began exploring how to combine them. In this presentation I will share techniques to combine glass and steel, linking two very different materials to create something new and exciting. Whether or not you ever use the specific materials, this demonstration will encourage you to play and explore in whatever work you pursue.

The demonstration will showcase practical work on “Return to the Process” research techniques. Live silver ingot hammering with stone tools will illustrate its transformation. The different stages of clay molds and lost wax will be displayed. A video snippet will also highlight torchless casting on a Guaira (Pre-Hispanic furnace).
