Lost Wax Casting Class
Explore the possibilities of using clay to create objects that can be cast in glass in this fun, intensely packed class. Learn all the techniques, tips and tricks with renowned Mark Abildgaard! Mark will introduce you to his highly expressive clay-to-wax sculpting technique. You will create forms in clay into which wax will be poured to create a model. The models will then be invested into refactory molds for glass casting. Each student will make one relief and one 3D sculpture which will be fired at the end of the class. No previous glass casting experience is required.
Mark Abildgaard received a B.A. degree in Art from San Francisco State University in 1979 and a M.F.A. degree in Art from the University of Hawaii in 1984. After graduating, he worked as an artist in residence at the Tokyo Glass Art Institute in Japan and at Sculpture Space in Utica, NY. He also was awarded a five month fellowship at the Creative Glass Center of America in Millville, New Jersey in 1985. Since 1986, he has worked in his Northern California studio creating kiln cast sculptures. Mark’s sculptures have been included in the collections of the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York, the Oakland Museum of Art in Oakland, California, the Richmond Museum of Art in Richmond, Virginia, the Crocker Museum in Sacramento, California and the Triton Museum in Santa Clara California.
