This class is an introduction to working and thinking with glass. Focused on contextualizing flameworking within contemporary sculpture, students will learn to create small objects, apply color, and explore solid and hollow sculptural forms during the course. Through a mixture of technical exercises and creative projects, the goal of the course is for students to gain confidence in their ability and be able to create well-crafted objects. This class will also discuss annealing, equipment safety, and set-up, and look at both historical and contemporary examples of flameworked glass for reference. Whether you’re an artist working in another medium, new to flameworking, or experienced with glass, makers of all levels are welcome.
