Shape it Hot, Cut it Cold

January 16th - January 26th
Ethan Stern |

This class will investigate glass blowing and cold working techniques through a sculptural lens. Thinking out of the round, we will focus on pattern, form and the color application processes. We will explore sculpting closed forms in the hot shop using the anatomy of the vessel as a launching point; expect to push the bubble in a whole new direction. In the cold shop we will explore engraving and carving glass as a means to explore texture, color, surface and form. Carving techniques using various tools including glass cutting and engraving lathes will be shown, formulating new approaches to sculpting in the cold shop.
