Students in Dr. Jane Cook and Anna Riley’s class at The Studio this week experimented with tin baths and glass. Chill marks are one of a glassmaker’s worst enemies, but they’re unavoidable when marvering on a metal table. To get around this problem, tin baths were created to shape the glass without chill marks. This process revolutionized the plate glass industry and allowed manufacturers to create huge sheets of window glass. Jane and Anna’s class brought tin baths back to the hot shop as they and their students experimented with casting hot glass onto the molten tin.

Claire Bell has just started her David Whitehouse Research Residency at the Museum! During the month of June, Bell will investigate figurative imagery from both historic and contemporary settings and reimagine it using mirrored float glass engravings. The Museum’s glass collection, along with prints and cartoons from the Rakow Research Library, will grant Bell access to material far more substantial than she’s used to. “Currently, I focus on elevating images of everyday, mundane items, such as rubber gloves, or banana skins,” she says.

With his assistant, J. Lin-Hsien Kung, artist-in-residence Jim Butler created blown vessels covered with layers of thin, broken, colored glass. Jim will be transforming these vessels by firing full-color decals on them in the kiln. Stay tuned for more from Jim and his fellow artist-in-residence, Fred Kahl, during their residencies here at The Studio.
