From the Furnace to the Flame

January 13th - January 17th
Alexander Rosenberg |

Students will work between the hot shop and the flame shop to make use of the diverse material properties of soda-lime and borosilicate glass. Incorporating traditional and innovative hot glassworking techniques, students will produce objects that push perceived limitations of scale and function. Students will work in teams at the glassblowing furnace, honing precise hand skills and developing a common language, while learning to manipulate borosilicate independently in front of the torch. The class will focus on joining the two materials together mechanically, using careful measurements to make components that fit together. Students will benefit from some prior experience in the hot shop, and should bring a notebook, writing implement, and an open mind.
