Are you tired of making glass vessels? Does the thought of making another tumbler or bowl fill you with dread? Do you ever look at a vase and wish it looked more like a wombat? We have just the class for you! Get rid of those pesky blowpipes as you learn the finer points of pushing, pulling, pinching and shaping your way into becoming a glass sculptor. Learn how to add bits of hot glass to objects to transform them into creatures with a variety of stamps and crimps. Discover the finer points of the Oxy-Gas torch as you use it to spot heat areas of your creations to add detail. This is an intermediate glassblowing course. Students should have a basic understanding of the tools and process, keep glass on-center, and be able to marver.
