This class will demonstrate many different sculpting techniques with an emphasis on exploring the potential of the material rather than focusing on finished pieces. Students will be presented with techniques that use a variety of hot torches and tools to bring out more detail and produce a more refined object. Discussions will cover the advantages and disadvantages of solid and blown forms, sculpting from inside of the bubble with special tools, and manipulating the surface to attain a desired result.
