Flameworking

All Levels
Duration: 
One-Week Session

Explore a broad range of flameworking techniques using borosilicate color, frit, and powder glass. Students will embark on an evolution through glassmaking, beginning with marbles (single cell); through fungus, aquatics, small land mammals, and ending with the human form. Using glass tubing, students will create small hollow vessels, beads, and goblets. Glass lathe instruction will be available for goblet and stem assembly. Students will return home with projects and ideas to further develop their work and have an opportunity to participate in discussions about studio design, equipment, and safety. This class will use borosilicate (hard) glass only.

No glassworking experience is required; advanced students are welcome.
