Students will explore an expanded understanding of temperature control while using striking colored borosilicate glass in both the flame and in the kiln while creating solid and hollow sculptural forms. Through a layered application of powders and frits, students will increase their awareness of color theory within a variety of opacities from opaque to transparent. Surface textures and surface applications will also be explored including fuming, encasement, and fumed sandblasting.

This class takes place on Thursday evenings for 10 weeks. Class time will be spent with technical demonstrations each week followed by assisted work time.  Students are encouraged to bring developed ideas to class for completion over a multi-week process. This class will use borosilicate (hard) glass.

One year of flameworking experience is required.
