From The Furnace to The Lathe

Wednesday, April 24th to Sunday, April 28th. 10:00 am - 6:00 pm

Working between hot and cold shops, you will take a sculptural approach to form, pattern, and surface. Focusing on blown forms in the hot shop, you will be challenged to break out of the round and think about the bubble in new ways. Aspects of coldworking will be covered with a focus on the processes of carving and deep cutting. Hot glass demonstrations will include vessel and sculptural exploration including shaping with graphite and cork paddles on a ceramic shelf surface. We will also explore the use of a variety of punty types and color application techniques including overlays and color cups. Demonstrations in the cold shop will include carving with the lathe using diamond wheels of various profiles along with various finishing methods. You will be encouraged to approach the class as an experiment in strengthening designs, concepts, and teamwork.
