Brazee is thrilled to welcome back Visiting Instructor and Artist Nathan Sandberg for this 4-day comprehensive workshop! Don't miss your chance to learn from Nathan Sandberg - artist, educator, and a true groundbreaker in kilnglass art.
Take your Vitrigraph murrine a few steps further by learning a handful of innovative methods in this new workshop. Over four days students will work hands on with the Vitrigraph kiln and turn their fresh murrine into something special in subsequent firings. Micro-murrine, slices, mounds and bars will all be introduced and exploited.
Students in this class must have prior murrine making experience, having either previously taken a Vitrigraph workshop from Nathan or by purchasing and studying his Foundational Murrine video from AAE Glass. Students must also be confident at cutting sheet glass. Class projects will take the form of smaller studies rather than finished projects however Nathan will lead discussions on how to move from samples to finished projects upon returning to your home studio.
Artist and educator, Nathan Sandberg is based in Portland, Oregon. After working in the Research & Education department at Bullseye Glass company for 8 years he started Nathans LLC in 2012 and has established himself as one of the top kiln-glass educators teaching today.
From Santa Fe to Zurich and Australia to Norway, Nathan is usually somewhere on the planet presenting fresh, innovative curriculum at a wide range of studios, schools and art centers.
He is widely credited as the pioneer of the modern Vitrigraph methods which he began to develop at the Bullseye Factory in 2009 and has since taken to unprecedented levels of control.
In 2015 Nathan's LLC moved out of the basement and into a proper studio space in the Kenton neighborhood of North Portland. Today, Nathan uses OnGrade Studio as his home base and can be found there relentlessly producing work for exhibitions and developing new curriculum to teach whenever he isn't on the road.
His primary material is glass although his installations commonly make use of other materials such as wood, metal and concrete. And his artwork can be found in private and public collections around the world.
