The Perfect Vessel

About The Perfect Vessel

A talk by international glass-maker Karl Harron about his glass work and concepts. Looking at reactive glasses, work practice and teaching practice.

Form: “ which shape is determined, as distinguished from the material of which it is composed, giving it individuality and a distinctive character”.

This interactive talk will gently lead you through my concepts and ideas associated with “Form”, employing the actual power-point presentation from The Perfect Vessel 7-day international master class.

Through discussions and Q&A’s the process will be to discard the superfluous and to identify and develop a personal concept in order to advance your aesthetic and conceptual perspectives.

The result will be a concept that is the simple expression of a complex thought and participants will be encouraged to adopt a sculptural approach to their work - a search for form and push their glass in a new direction rather than master a technique.

But ultimately there has to be a “reason” to create anything, a desire to fulfil a concept which is perceived to be worth the outcomes.

Hosted by City of Glasgow College in partnership with Scottish Glass Society.
