Bild-Werk: Drawing Stories on Glass with Ioana Stelea
September 2, 2017 - September 9, 2017€440
Glass hides stories and the wheel reveals them. The engraver connects these two elements using one’s heart, mind and hands. Common elements around us can be transposed in glass and carry stories cut deep in the fragile surface. Working from collective memories we can create our own, unique world.
The course focuses on developing creativity and compositional thinking using the techniques of glass engraving. Discovering step by step the secrets of every tool, and understanding the effects that can be obtained, we shall combine the deep cuts of the lathe with delicate lines and marks left by the drill and the perfect mat surfaces obtained by sandblasting.
You are invited to bring sketch books, images, stories and memories which we can draw onto glass. We will work on flat and blown clear glass and on shapes made together during the course using the fusing technique. The course is open to beginners as well as experienced engravers, and is centered on spontaneity and experiment.Ioana Stelea (b.1988 Romania) trained at the National University of Arts in Bucharest, and as an Erasmus student in the Czech Republic, followed by working with engraving master Milan Holubek at the Moser Glassworks, CZ. Finally she completed her MA in Glass Art at the National University of Arts in Bucharest where she now is employed. Ioana is active both as an artists, as a researcher, and as a teacher of glass engraving. Her work is in public collections and she has made many solo exhibitions as well as participation in group shows.
