My Coloring Book: Science Fun with Furnace Glass Color

Classes

Date: 
November 2 - 3, 2019 9:00am to 4:00pm
Season: 
Fall
Technique: 
Glassblowing
Level: 
Advanced-Beginner
Duration: 
Weekend Workshop

In this class for furnace glass workers, we’ll talk about the science of glass colors: what makes the color, and both why and how colorants can change the workability, expansion, and reactivity of glass. Through demos using bar, cane, and melts, students will get a hands-on feel of the chemistry and physics forces at work. In projects, students can use the information to push the limits of technique and design and search for new definitions of compatible.

 Students must have completed a beginning glassblowing course. Intermediate and advanced students are also welcome.
