Down to the Wire: Experimental Glassblowing with Cages, Molds, and More

December 2nd - January 20th
Esteban Salazar |

This class will explore the amazing ability glass has to take on beautiful and unexpected forms. Using experimental tools and methods, while expanding on fundamental glassblowing techniques, students will explore a world of new shapes. Utilizing the compatibility between copper and furnace glass, students will blow and cast into structures made out of copper wire and mesh. Students will also use other wires, materials, and tools to access forms that are almost impossible to create from freehanded glassmaking. This class will open up endless sculptural possibilities, increasing in complexity each week. Expand your technical knowledge of the material, and add new and interesting ideas to play with in the hot shop!  

Having some glassblowing experience goes a long way in this class, but everybody is welcome to join us.

Please note this class skips December 9th & 30th.
