Glassblowing, Hot-Glass Sculpting.
Students will explore glass utilizing formal elements of line, shape and mass as sculptural vocabulary for the creation of personal forms of expression. Hot shop and cold shop skills and methods will align and broaden students ideas regarding glass as it relates to contemporary sculpt. Exposure to a variety of materials and processes will enable students to make models and complete sculptures form large scale outdoor works to small intimate objects. Site specific, exhibition, documentation, portfolio development and representation concerns will be addressed.
