Glass Summer Session 2
June 5–June 17
Karen Willenbrink-Johnsen and Jasen Johnsen
Hot Glass Sculpting
This workshop will be crammed full of information drawn from our lengthy experience in sculpting glass. We’ll present experimental ways of working glass so ideas can materialize. Demonstrations will include a variety of frit and powder techniques, torch work, and the use of customized tools. We’ll cover blown and solid forms with an emphasis on teamwork and use the garage to construct parts. Students will have time to work out their ideas daily. Plan to work hard and have a blast. Intermediate level: two years of hot glass experience required. Hot glass studio.
