This is an intermediate Hotshop class designed to sharpen your focus and skill sets on the road towards mastery. We will start by transforming a simple bubble into compound shapes by experimenting with forms and taking notes on our observations. We will talk about color application and processes such as incalmo and overlays that will deepen our understanding of what forms are possible. Throughout the class, we will cover the fundamentals of glass such as gathering technique, heat management, and the manipulation of the material. At the end of this class you will have a better understanding of glass and how to use less effort to reach a desired result.
