Glass A Summer Session 5

Glass Summer Session 5
July 17–29
Kazuki Takizawa
Exploring Creativity with Cane and Murrine

Students in this workshop will be challenged to subvert the fundamentals of glassblowing and explore their individual interests. We’ll help each other experiment with whatever wild ideas we may have about glass, venturing out from traditional glass vessels. Demonstrations will include using bundles of rods, preheated shards, fused glass chunks, and more as we work to develop our own unique methods of shaping molten glass. More technical demonstrations will be given in the latter half of the workshop, including the use of cane and murrine as a way to introduce line and pattern. All levels. Hot glass studio.
