Glass Summer Session 2
June 7-19, 2020
Boyd Sugiki & Lisa Zerkowitz
Form, Color & Professional Practice
This workshop will start with a focus on refining skills by working on clear forms such as tumblers, bowls, bottles, and squeezed forms. Students will practice working efficiently, improving heat control, and surveying blowing theories. Then we’ll apply these skills to color techniques such as overlays, cane work, incalmo, and other processes. Instruction will be personalized to build on each individual’s skills with one-on-one time used to find solutions to common struggles. We’ll also have conversations about professional practice and field trips to local studios. Intermediate level: two years of hot glass experience required. Code 02GA
