Instructor: Jason Howard
In this high energy, technique driven class, you will gain expert heat base and atmosphere control. Learn how to operate a torch at different pressures to achieve unique effects, and understand why you would want to do that. Try one of the Herbert Arnold torches and learn what makes them so nice. We will study Venetian hot glass techniques and how to adapt them to lampworking focusing on stemware and large assembled pieces. We will also cover precious metal fuming, color composition and control, and how to effectively use compressed air to change the atmosphere and control the heat base. Come prepared with questions and problems you would like to have answered, and leave with a fundamentally different understanding of glass.
