Event description

Description

Explore the brittle characteristics of glass as a medium for expression and aesthetic in this 6 week class. Demonstrations and technical exercises will investigate how to blow and break glass in a controlled manner in the hot shop, which will expand our knowledge and experience on how to NOT break glass and complete pieces successfully. The work we will make will range from blowing to sculpting, to hot construction, ladling and the use of inclusions. Through these various processes we will get a better understanding of ideal heat and temperature to manipulate and/or preserve the integrity of cracks, shards and fire polishing to smooth sharp edges. Be ready to play, experiment and be surprised by the material.

Instructor: Romina Gonzales
