Instructor: Robert Mickelsen
This class will focus on design aspects of functional glass vessels using flameworking techniques. Three types of vessels will be explored: goblets, teapots, and pipes. Students will design and execute pieces that combine strong aesthetics with good function to create unique, original forms. There will be in-depth discussion of historical design aspects of each type of vessel to establish a baseline for creating new designs. There will be extensive hands-on instruction and direction from the instructor and assistant to help the students achieve their designs. I am very honored to have Seattle artist Jared Betty (@jredglass) as my assistant. Some flameworking experience is required for this class.
