NEW!  -  MASTERCLASS - ADVANCED PATTERN MAKING USING KILN FORMED GLASS An Investigation into Linear Symmetry with Ian Chadwick


In this three-day course Ian will take you through how he uses stunning methods to explore  principles of advanced pattern forming in fused glass.  Using Bullseye stringers to create pre-formed coloured glass sheets, students will expand their knowledge and experience of kiln-forming and cold-working techniques to produce intricate patterns which utilise symmetry and geometry to create hypnotising mandala-like patterns.

You will be guided through the creation of  these sheets which, once fired will be deconstructed and reassembled. You will learn how the arrangement of tone and colour can enhance the optical properties of the pattern design and Ian will then show how to lay out the pattern using principles of four-fold and eight-fold symmetry.

Students will utilise these concepts and techniques to create a glass tile of their own design.

With no more than six places on this course you will receive plenty of individual time and attention from Ian and a studio assistant throughout each day.    


Ian Chadwick has a background in sculpture and stained-glass window design, disciplines which he applies to his constantly evolving range of kiln-formed glass art. The glass Ian produces uses rotational symmetry as a tool to achieve patterns which exhibit a hypnotic, op-art effect. Ian uses kiln-forming techniques to produce sheets of striped, coloured glass which are then deconstructed and reconstructed into mandala-like patterns. These arrangements are then kiln-fired and cold worked to produce the finished piece. This work embodies Ian’s interest in the esoteric art of sacred geometry, commonly found in the rose windows of cathedrals and the mandalas of eastern religious lore.https://ianchadwickglassart.co.uk/
