About the class
This course will introduce students to some of the methods and techniques that Jeremy uses to put imagery on, and in, glass.
During this two-and-half-day workshop, students will utilize an image (either drawn or a photograph) to discover the different ways that they can incorporate that imagery into form. The class will make use of fusible sheet glass, glass powders, and both high and low fire enamel to achieve imagery.
Basic to advanced ideas of kiln forming opportunities such as conditions of firing and compatibility concerns will also be addressed.

Jeremy Lepisto received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Alfred University in 1997. After graduating, he made his way to Portland to work for Bullseye Glass Company. In 2001, he left Bullseye and started the independent studio, Studio Ramp LLC, a custom glass kilnforming fabrication studio that translated artists and architects designs into glass from concept to completion.
Lepisto has exhibited his work and lectured internationally, as well as serving on the Board of Directors for the Glass Art Society for over seven years (with one year as Vice President and two years as their President).
After re-locating to Canberra, Lepisto established an independent glass studio, Workshop Level in Queanbeyan. With this facility, Lepisto is again making kilnformed works for other people as well as working on a body of practice led research for a PhD degree in Sculpture from the Australian National University. He also serves part-time as a Technical Officer in the Sculpture Workshop at the university.
