One-Week Session

Using solid blocks of glass, we will experiment with aspects of advanced cold working: grinding, polishing, the use of horizontal mill wheels and vertical lathes, and cutting with stone and diamond to create constructions from glass. We will also use the HXTAL gluing process to join glass elements. No glassworking experience is required.

*Note: If you would like two weeks of in-depth study with Martin Rosol and Pavel Novak, please apply for this and the session prior to this one.
