This week look for Fred Tschida, Professor of Glass Sculpture/Dimensional Studies at Alfred University in NY, in the Hot Shop.A longtime faculty artist at Pilchuck Glass School, Tschida returned this summer to teach a workshop on CASTING LIGHTâ€¦.creating luminous objects.
Known for his
conceptual use of neon, Tschida
has taken the medium into open places and affixed it to moving creatures.In 1975 he
harnessed 180 feet of neon tubing to a portable gas generator and with 28 friends walked this light line 4 miles - the longest neon tube ever to have crossed the Mississippi river.On the Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah, Tschida
mounted a 22' tall neon column atop his
car "to make light drawings."And, in his
rotating neon works "Rotating Cone and Torus" and "Martini Glass" Tschida
continues to put neon in places it hasn't been before, filling space with light, using light as a 3-dimensional material.
