Instructor: Ross Richmond
This class will demonstrate many different sculpting techniques with an emphasis on working more explorative to see the potential of the material and push personal boundaries, rather than focusing on finished pieces. You will be presented with techniques that use a variety of hot torches and tools for the purpose of bringing out more detail and producing a more refined object. Discussions will cover the advantages and disadvantages of solid and blown forms and sculpting from the inside of the bubble with special tools or manipulating the surface to attain a desired result. Drawing is an important tool for visualizing ideas so sketchbooks are mandatory with images and ideas you would like to work on.
