Instructor: Tom Rowney
Blown glass has a life of its own, and we all want to harness the amazing qualities that it can produce. In this class you will focus on drawings and ideas of things you have always wanted to make (or don’t know how to make). Discover the easier ways to achieve what you want and problem solve difficult ideas into achievable results.
Through discussion and demonstration, we will explore basic blown forms, varied construction and joining techniques. Color applications plus many Venetian techniques such as, Incalmo and cane work will also be covered. With a focus on team work we will have the opportunity to explore the dynamics of hot blown constructions. Simple class projects will help you hone your skills. Plus I’ll show you how to gain solid skills that will help you translate your ideas into the forms you desire.
