The Whole is Greater Than the Sum of Its Parts

March 26th - April 30th
Erica Rosenfeld |

This cross-studio course will offer a survey of different hot and cold shop techniques to change the scale and dimension of your work. We will use traditional and non-traditional hot shop techniques to create smaller components in order to incorporate them into larger work. We will tackle glassblowing, hot-working, cane and murrine pulling and will also cover coldworking techniques to finish work. We will investigate different solutions to “cold connect” glass components beyond what is possible in the hot shop including gluing and drilling. There will be a strong emphasis on design, problem solving and finding new uses for traditional techniques. Students should be prepared to expand on their current body of work and to be open to challenging your rules of making. Some previous glass experience would be helpful.

This class has access to Student Hours for the semester, dedicated hours open to student use. Glass processes take practice, so utilize this free time in our studios to learn! For details email Kellie at
