Brian Serck aka BERZERKER - "Dichroic Extract Application”
Wednesday October 12th
12 pm to 3 pm

Class overview: Berzerker will discuss and torch demo the dichroic extract technique.

Bio: Berzerker aka Brian Serck, born in 1972 is a Colorado native, currently living in beautiful Gunnison Co. where he attended Western State University, and received a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts. After graduation in 1996 he began his career as a glassblower, and works out of his home studio nicknamed "The Bubble".
In 2008 Berzerker invented a technique he calls "Dichroic Extract”, which involves painting the dichroic directly on the glass in sandblasted areas and encasing. Not only did he coin the phrase, but he also created the product with the cooperation of Coatings by Sandberg. Now, Dichroic Extract is used all over the world, in all types of glass. Consistently pushing the boundaries of glassblowing techniques, some of the other discoveries to Berzerker's credit are "Multiple Layered Graal with Watercolor Frit", and "Glow Powder Back Fill", and "Berzerker's Dark Matter", a mold making clay for glassblowing.
Berzerker’s favorite thing about glass as a medium is, “the magical quality…the misunderstood nature that has been kept {a secret}. Once you understand the basics, you will find that isn’t even the beginning of knowing.” He claims to obsess over breaking down other people’s techniques to understand them and recreate them as his own.
