Graphic Swim: 2D and 3D printing in glass Casting

Sarmiento, Jeffrey (2019) Graphic Swim: 2D and 3D printing in glass Casting. MDPI Arts, 8 (29). ISSN 2076-0752

Item Type: Article


This document is a report on developing processes to encourage flow of the graphic image in kilnformed glass. It is also a description and reflection on a body of artworks in glass in which new visual qualities were exposed through a mishap and turned into an aesthetic choice. The research links 2D print approaches to 3D printing and their integration in cast glass. It updates the author’s practice-based PhD research, a study that utilizes glass printing, cutting and fusing processes to combine the printed image within the glass object. The outcomes of the study can be organized under two approaches that have been developed, one appropriate to practical workshop teaching, and the other for the conceptualization and fabrication of new personal artworks.
