Intro to Implosion Marbles

March 3rd - March 4th
Stephen Wallace |

This class will dissect the process of implosions, a popular technique for encasing color inside borosilicate glass. The implosion method is a variation on compression (Kobuki) marbles using hollow glass tubing as opposed to solid rod. Students will learn the techniques involved in both processes. We will identify how implosions/compressions work, how to frame the design and optics of our marbles, and the specific gravity and flame techniques required to attain those results.

Students will also learn basic color application and considerations for different colors within the boro palate. All are welcome!
