Sparking Life into Art: Sculpting Animals in Glass
Explore the potential of working with hot glass as a sculptural medium. This class will focus on special techniques and approaches to solid and blown sculpting that can take your sculpture to the next level by demonstrating the range and freedom the material has and showing its true potential. We will bring sculptures to life using a variety of torches and sculpting techniques, which include solid sculpting, inside sculpting, bit building, color application, garage use, and most importantly teamwork. Problem solving will be emphasized and students are encouraged to bring in images of forms you are interested in recreating.
