Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract / Description of output

A talk about the use of intentional inclusions and inner space within art glass. A short history of inclusions in glass will be presented alongside a range of different techniques that are used when adding glass or metal inclusions to glass. We will also present some of the material compatibility problems we have solved during our research when mixing other materials with glass. In addition, a selection of artists that use other inclusions in glass such as air inclusions, pre-made glass inclusions, and print will be discussed. This talk sets out the parameters of the field providing an in-depth study into the concept and use of inclusions which plays an important part in understanding why so many artists use inclusions in their practice. Through this talk, we will define and explore the variety of ways, both from a historical and contemporary perspective, that inclusions in glass, have been combined together over many years.
