This two-week course will focus on creating glass sculpture utilizing a variety of moldmaking techniques for hot glass. We will work with multipart blow molds, lost wax processes, and hot glass ladle casting. Refinement of our hot glass products may be done in the cold shop with sawing, grinding, engraving, polishing, gluing, and surface treatments. Students will develop an understanding of each of these techniques and how best to adapt them for their sculptural work. Group and individual discussions will fuel the development of concepts and creation of pieces. A collaborative, team-based approach to working will be encouraged.
