This includes grinding, carving, engraving, polishing and sandblasting-- all of which provide opportunities for artists to resolve aesthetic and functional issues, ranging from shape and surface quality to strength and stability of edges. In this class, you will try your hand at many coldworking methods, using state-of-the-art tools. You will also discuss ways to adapt basic methods to home studio practice. Prerequisite: None.

This class will cover techniques Morgan uses to achieve the crisp linear quality and distinctive character of his glass work. Through technical demonstrations and one on one discussion we will explore facets of the process including: developing ideas in the sketchbook, cutting and assembling of glass compositions, basic powder printing and preparation of work for firing. Several different projects will allow students to experiment with these techniques while being challenged to think creatively about concept. Finishing work in the cold shop and strategies for presenting it for display will round out the content. The aim of this class is to give students the tools to pursue their own unique visions efficiently, confidently and to have fun while doing so.

Glass has a plasticity and behavior which lends itself to sculpting, and this course will provide a freedom to explore process and the potential of the material. This is not a traditional glass sculpting class however, as we will be using various torches in the hot shop to create more detailed work. We will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of using a solid or blown form and explore various methods of color application. In this 5 day intensive we will be doing more explorative sculpting than making actual finished pieces. Sketchbooks are mandatory. At least two years hot glass experience required.

Instructor: Jennifer Caldwell & Jason Chakravarty

In this five-day workshop we will illustrate a design in glass using introductory techniques of flame working and kiln casting. We will begin with drawings. The focus will be capturing a memory, portrait, scene, or landscape. The casting will function as a backdrop and flame worked elements will set the stage and allow us to incorporate delicate details. Once a design is drawn out, students will use water clay to make a relief. The finished clay will then be covered in plaster. The clay is then removed and the plaster mold is loaded into a kiln and filled with glass. While the mold is firing, students will create the flame worked elements in the torch. Once the mold cools, the plaster is removed and the flame worked elements are attached to the casting. Only life experience is necessary and a desire to learn and combine elements using multiple techniques.
