Glass A Summer Session 7

Glass Summer Session 7
August 22-28, 2021
Andy Paiko
We’re on Our Own

Based on the idea that if you want things done right you must do them yourself, this class will take a look at self-sufficiency in the glass studio. From solo, hot-work tips and techniques at the furnace to coldworking and assembly strategies, students will be encouraged to create the ambitious large and/or intricate work they have always wanted to attempt. Topics will include hot assembly alone, adding avolios and blown feet alone, solo punty making, marver-casting shapes for hot pick-up, and more. We’ll consider what goes into the whole process from idea generation to cashing the check and every step in between. You’ll be encourage to become lifelong students when there are no longer instructors and it’s time to get down to business. All levels. Hot shop.
