When Alyssa Oxley taught her glass box class in 2016, students were unanimous in their praise for her. Class projects were nothing less than spectacular. That's why we are excited to have Alyssa returning to Helios in 2017!
In Alyssa's Kilnformed Lidded Boxes class, students will cut sheet glass into strips and stacks as they explore different construction techniques to create square and round boxes. Students will complete a box of their own design with matching lid, without the need for traditional (and messy) casting materials like plaster and silica flour.
Alyssa Oxley has been working with kilnformed and cast glass for about 15 years. She has experience in commercial art, interior and graphic design and despite her paying jobs, has always maintained an active, independent fine art studio of her own.
Her current work in glass is strongly driven by time spent outside, along Otter Creek near her home in Vermont, or walking the school campus abutting her property.
Oxley learned a lot of what she knows about glass working in the Kremer Glass Studio in Pound Ridge, New York. She currently teaches kilnforming glass classes at South End Glass at Davis Studio in Burlington, and summer intensives in places like the Corning Museum of Glass Studio, Snow Farm Craft School and Oatka Glass School.
