Glass Summer Session 7
Michael C. Krupiarz
Observe and Execute
This workshop is for beginning glass students looking to further develop their skill sets. We’ll take a close look at what is happening with the glass when it is heated, stretched, and blown. Students will practice making geometric forms—cones, cylinders, and spheres—that will inform more complicated shapes. We’ll emphasize technique, control, problem-solving methods, and clean lines. Instruction time will be divided between daily demonstrations and plenty of individual attention. Advanced beginning level: at least one prior glass workshop required.
