GLASS SUMMER SESSION 3
JUNE 18–30, 2023
Deceptively Simple: A Floral Spin Around the Color Wheel
Each student will create their own color wheel made of flameworked glass flowers. The workshop is designed to build confidence and skills through repetition with a special focus on pulling consistent petal stock, cutting in the flame, learning how and when to adjust the flame, and getting great fuses. We’ll work mostly with furnace glass canes lightly colored with glass powders. By layering other colors in the torch, students will learn to customize their palette. Students can progress at their own rate, moving on to more complex flowers as they build and master skills. Ideal for beginners, bead workers, color enthusiasts, and glass workers interested in torch working with glass that is compatible in the hot shop. All levels. Flameworking studio.
