Neues Glas - No. 1/2023
Tg: Transitions in Kiln-Glass, a biennial exhibition organized by Bullseye Projects is a juried competition and resulting exhibition. It reflects the expansion and evolution of the kiln-glass medium and its community. While still encouraging emerging talent, the parameters for this year's exhibition have been widened to include a broader range of artists and to acknowledge the expansion of kiln-glass into the architectural and design fields.
In contrast to glassblowing, which uses a pipe to inflate and shape molten glass, kilnforming uses a kiln to bind and shape layers or particles of glass, known as frit. Tg refers to the temperature at which glass transitions from behaving like a solid to behaving like a liquid. This metamorphosis embodies the ethos of kiln-glass: the transformation that occurs when glass softens and yields to the fierce heat of the kiln.
