GLASS SUMMER SESSION 5
JULY 16–28, 2023
Kelly O’Dell and Raven Skyriver
We draw on the natural world as an endless well of inspiration for our work. Join us in the beautiful setting of Penland School where we will study the environment and use the concept of rewilding as a springboard for discussions of ecology, our relationship to the creatures, plants, and stones around us, and how all this relates to the work we make. Technical information will include all forms of color application, use of the hot torch and heat zones, reverse engineering of punty constructions for all applications, inside sculpting, solid sculpting, blown sculpture, bit work, and building complex forms from relatively simple components by using the garage and pick-up ovens. Intermediate/advanced level: two years of hot glass experience required.
