Working between hot and cold Shops, students will take a sculptural approach to integrating form, pattern, and surface. Focusing on closed forms in the hot shop, students will be challenged to break out of the round and think about the bubble in new ways. Demonstrations will include hot-glass shaping with graphite and cork paddles, the use of blown punties and various color application techniques. Demonstrations in the cold shop will include carving at the lathe with diamond and stone wheels along with general finishing techniques. Students will be encouraged to research, draw, and approach the class as an experiment in strengthening designs, concepts, and teamwork.
