Summer Intensives

Description

Instructor: Shane Fero

This class begins with the sculpting of solid rods in the flame encompassing the human form, animals, avian, aquatic, botanical and other denizens of the natural and dream worlds. On a parallel path, we will continue to work with tubes learning how to pull points, blow and flare out tops and feet for our blown vessels, which include vases, bottles, goblets and their fusion with solid parts such as handles and figurative elements. We will also cover some blown sculpture. Finally, we will try to integrate these techniques into mixed-media installations and found objects to realize conceptual and personal statements.

On a practical level, we will be working with both borosilicate and soda-lime glasses and the course will be augmented by PowerPoint presentations illustrating different historical aspects of this technique.
