Pick It Up, Pick It Up!

August 19th - August 23rd

Blow it, sculpt it, cut it, polish it- then pick it back up and do it again!
Let’s use the hot glass shop to explore simplified blown and sculpted forms. We will look at post-gathering and working the glass thick and even. From there we will cold work and enamel the objects. In the cold shop we will engrave, grind or sandblast. Day 3 we pick our pieces back up, fire polish and re-sculpt. We will talk about annealing cycles and explore non-traditional methods to create unique, interesting glass objects.
