I Love My Job+Examples OF Printmaking In Glass Art

So, I’m a few weeks into my new job at Bullseye Glass, and I am having a blast.  I get to talk with artist’s about their work and process; I have learned so much about kiln-formed glass; and I really enjoy working with the people I work with.

One thing I am constantly impressed with at Bullseye is the drive to break new ground in regards to kiln-formed glass art, and how often this drive involves printmaking processes.

In todays post I’ll share some examples of this marriage by giving a shout out to Louise Krampien.  Louise works in the Research & Education Department at Bullseye and has developed a kiln cast glass making technique involving relief printmaking.  She is also teaching a course on this style here in Portland on August 17th.  Yesterday I set up a display of these pieces in the Resource Center to highlight the class and technique and was so impressed I feel it necessary to share.  They are amazing!

 

 

 

I’m scheduled to work two of the four days this course is going on and will most definitely be peeking in.

If you want more info on this class, here is the link:

Have a great day.

    1. There are so many cross overs between printmaking and glass art right now. My colleague Stacy Lynn Smith has actually devised a technique to silk screen with glass powder. It’s amazing!

    1. It’s pretty great. I won’t be assisting in the class, but I’ll be working in the same facility during it with plenty of opportunity to peak my head around the corner. I’m excited.

  1. This is great, Drew. How exciting to be working in a place that is innovative with their art! Thanks for sharing this with us. Good to see you are having fun!
