Immaterial: Scent and Hollow Cast Forms
“Perfume straddles the line between the tangible and intangible, the earthly and the ethereal, the real and the magical.” – Mandy Aftel
Fusing glass casting with history and sensory exploration, this course will examine the ethereal, fluid, and transparent qualities of glass and perfume; two properties that have been intertwined since their inception in ancient Mesopotamia. Students will be introduced to hollow-core casting and will use plant extractions and distillation to create their own individual scent. Each student will leave with a one-of-a-kind cast-glass vessel and a corresponding perfume.
Class is open to all skill levels.
Instructors: Emily Endo and Michael Endo
