In summer 2016, I spent significant time that I attended to workshops in US and the Stanislav Libensky Award Ceremony in Czech. My journey, for the duration of 1 and half month, started from Portland, Oregon.
I had a kilncasting workshop at the Resource Center Portland of Bullseye Glass Company from August 9th to 13th. I taught moldmaking techniques, "press-mold" and "hanging hollow-core kilncasting". The facility was well organized and there is limitness of educational resources and glass materials. The center was located adjacent to Bullseye factory, warehouse and headquarters. I toured the factory which has been in operation for more than 40 years, and saw all production processes, melting the batch to casting the sheet of glass. The class ends 5pm everyday, and I explore the district of Portland where is known as an area of urban renewal city.
