OAHU SLIDE LECTURE AND RECEPTION
MAUI SLIDE LECTURE AND RECEPTION
Miguel Unson will introduce and cover his approach and techniques to creating his uniquely organic patterns in fused glass. He will share with students his signature method of firing vertical stringers to create unpredictable patterns as well as techniques of cutting, recombining, re-melting and manipulating glass to create unique works. Students will be encouraged to take these techniques as a departure point for their own work and build it into their aesthetic. Kilnforming is experience is helpful but not required.
Miguel Unson received his Masters of Science from the Pratt Institute in packaging design and his Bachelors of Arts in theater and English at Carleton College. He has also studied at Danmarks Designskole and Parsons School of Design. He was an Emerging Artist in Residence and instructor at the Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, WA, and has taught at UrbanGlass in Brooklyn, NY, the Pittsburgh Glass School in Pittsburgh, PA, and at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Unson currently lives and works in Stanwood, Washington.
“I want to spark a revolution in 21st Century studio glass by harnessing the power of the unknown and combining it with the ancient and the eternal. Glass is renowned for its ability to capture light, but it is equally adept at celebrating emotion and reflecting nature. What a privilege to step into this world, and to revel in one of the world’s most elusive yet enduring art forms.”
