Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes: Figurative Studies in Glass

June 4th - June 8th
Carmen Lozar |

This 5-day class will create figurative artworks out of borosilicate glass at the torch. Using primarily glass rod but exploring some tubing, the work shop will start with the basic torso and advance to creating the full figure. Emphasis will be placed on the emotion that can be achieved through poses as well as the created environments we place our figurative works with in. Come ready to try your hand at both realistic and playful interpretations of the human form.

What to Expect: Flameworking requires a little practice at heat control with the torch to create successful pieces. After demonstrations, expect to make some successful objects in this class, and a couple failures, while gaining more confidence and skill in the studio. Read more about how to prepare for class on our Registration Info page. 

Additional work time for intensive students: Students will also have access to additional hours in the flame shop, without instruction, on Wednesday - Saturday from 5-8pm.

Eligibility: Some flameworking experience is preferred, but not necessary - open to all levels. Open to ages 14 and up.

Pick-up: The glass needs to cool down overnight, so the students will have to return to UrbanGlass once notified to pick up their work.
