Instructor: John Drury Robbie Miller

Influential art duo CUD (John Drury of Brooklyn, NY and Robbie Miller of Vancouver) return to Seattle and Pratt, to share their unique perspective on 31 years of collaboratively producing art, with glass. Instruction during this hands-on, fast-paced 5-day class includes the non-traditional exploration and experimentation with glass in its characteristic states - cold, warm and hot. Participants will investigate the direct method of glass mosaic, the firing of enamels on to the surface of glass and spend time in the hot shop; as also informed through the presentation of off-beat examples, of the historical incorporation of the material in creative endeavors. No prior experience with glass is necessary, though an appreciation of contemporary art and outside of the box thinking is essential.

This class is an opportunity to refine and focus on your own path in glassblowing. Special Projects will allow students to make the class whatever they need to advance their techniques and the way they think about how to get things done, from design to calculations to implementation. Demonstrations will be used minimally to guide students on their personal journeys. Having most or all of the class to explore individual projects will give students ample time to work out kinks and questions in accordance with their own desires. Professional advice and helping hands throughout the classes will give students more bench time and opportunity to discover breakthrough ways of achieving desired results.

This class will be an examination of blown glass sculpting and including colorful cane techniques into your studio practice. I am a big proponent of making parts and using hot glass time wisely. I will be covering many of the techniques that I use in my work; including using solid color cane and making "suppio" (little tubes) for parts. As a class we will work together to design and execute effects, patterns, and forms that use cane and blown glass sculpting together. I want to students to come away from this class with the tools they need to include color and pattern into their work by thinking creatively about cane.
