Don’t Tread On My Glass

August 4, 2019 – August 10, 2019

Jennifer Caldwell and Jason Chakravarty

During this workshop students will illustrate a design in glass using techniques of flameworking and kiln casting. Beginning with drawings, the focus is on capturing a memory, portrait, scene, or landscape. The casting will function as a backdrop and flameworked elements set the stage and allow you to incorporate delicate details. Once a design is drawn out, students will use water clay to make a relief. The finished clay will then be covered in plaster. The clay is then removed, and the plaster mold is loaded into a kiln and filled with glass. While the mold is firing, participants will create the flame-worked elements in the torch. Once the mold cools, the plaster is removed, and the flame worked elements are attached to the casting. Only a desire to learn and use of multiple techniques are necessary. Open to all skill levels.



COURSE FEE: $675


Since 2012, Jennifer Caldwell and Jason Chakravarty have maintained a critical, conceptual and technical dialogue about their individual work, which evolved to collaborative pieces. They have mounted two-person exhibitions including work that challenges the experimental process specific to each of them. Within these compositions, Caldwell’s flameworked components represent her mastery of the process while Chakravarty contributes cast and blown glass. The finished compositions have been published in glass magazines and generously collected.


Jennifer Caldwell creates work that draws inspiration from her environment. Born and raised in California, she began working with glass while living in Hawaii. Caldwell now lives and works in Kingston, Washington, where the Pacific Ocean continues to influence her work. “Although my inspiration comes from the ocean, I am most intrigued by capturing movement. I try to emulate the movement of sea life in a simple contemporary form,” explains Caldwell about her work.

He was employed for four years at a commercial neon sign shop where he learned technical fundamentals of the neon process. In 2002, he began illuminating hot shop forms and kiln casting glass while attending graduate school at California State University Fullerton.
