International Glass




History of glass began here, in the Mediterranean region. In August 2014, we will return to the origin of glass by holding an International Glass Summer School at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem, Israel.

Program's goal is to explore the new vision of integration through diverse techniques of glass art, glass art traditions and people. 

Three parallel courses will accompany the program concentrating on teaching contemporary glass, sculpture techniques and concepts. Highly praised international glass artists in the contemporary art scene lead the three courses:

• Ivana Sramkova will lead the Kiln Casting course             
   Short Bio and Course Syllabus     Internet Site

• Sylvie Vandenhoucke will lead the Pate-de-Verre course 
   Short Bio and Course Syllabus       Internet Site

• Simone Crestani will lead the Flame Working course
   Short Bio                    Internet Site

We will integrate studies of each class with a work in a hot shop.
There will be rich cultural and social program as part the course.

The Summer School is from August 4 – 14, 2014 at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem, Israel.
