Heathfield School Glass Project

We have on display some of the glasswork made by Heathfield School GCSE Art pupils this year.

The project began back in January with a demonstration and practise sessions at the local Worcestershire school.

The students created designs in their Art department, as part of their GCSE Art subject curriculum. The students then attended a series of workshops at our studio to make their fused glass bowls.

The work will be on display at the Ruskin Glass Centre in Stourbridge till the end of January 2014.

Primary School Art Week

We have been working with Spring Vale Primary School as part of their ‘Art Week’. The idea is to create a stained glass window for their entrance, which will incorporate their school name and logo, surrounded by eight fused glass panels. The school located in Wolverhampton has over 250 pupils with 8 classes from nursery up to year 6.

The project began with each pupil drawing a 20cm square artwork inspired by nature.

As part of their ‘Art Week’, I spent an enjoyable day showing and demonstrating my glass making techniques. The pupils were keen, interested and asked lots of good questions. We worked with each class talking about their artworks and what they would like to see in their window.

These artworks were then taken back to the studio and one was chosen to represent each class. The chosen design will then be made using the fusing techniques, using outline enamel, frits and mosaic gems.

The pupils have developed their designs in their GCSE Art classes and will work from these to create their fused glass bowls.  The final fused glass artworks will go towards their coursework and a ‘end of year’ exhibition.Paul Floyd Fused Glass School Project (1) Paul Floyd Fused Glass School Project (4)
