Subculture Design: Principles and Process

July 23rd - August 3rd
Micah Evans |

Borosilicate glass design is an area of huge growth and exciting technical developments. Artists are looking towards progressive and innovative design solutions for both functional and non-functional objects. Over the last 10 years, a new generation has quietly taken on a high level of interest in this design field, bringing a necessity and focus to the material and objects. In this class, you will be presented with a series of problem solving exercises that will lead to well designed borosilicate objects. As a group we will discuss the pieces, their aesthetics, how they are used, and place them in our current culture. As designers, we are responsible for recognizing the full scope and complexity of these objects, and their place in our world and homes. Through research, discussions and exercises we will approach design structure, and work towards completed pieces.
