Introduction to Scientific Glass

February 25th - March 31st
Dylan Karle |

Let’s get technical! Due to its functionality and importance, scientific glass is some of the most technically complicated glass out there. This class will focus on scientific flameworking methods for working with hollow tubing. In the first half of class, we will cover basic techniques for sealing glass together and using ring seals. We will talk about glass basics, considering heat tolerance, stress, and how to manage and release that stress. We will also cover safety, equipment, and studio etiquette. In the latter half, we will begin to use those skills to build basic apparatus and sculptures, and discuss tools like bridging and jigs to increase the quality and accuracy of your work. Open to all levels.
