Glass Summer Session 5
July 18 – August 2, 2021

Mean What You Say

Art is communication, a language of thoughts and feelings. Every artist speaks a different dialect, and while the interpretation is subjective, the expression should be accurate. With a focus on honing sculptural skill, improving technical fluency, and developing creative intelligence, students will learn how to find their unique aesthetic speech and use this sculptural language to create short stories in glass. Through group and individual demos, we’ll cover sculpting borosilicate glass, assembly, timing, and texture. Mixed media and reckless abandon encouraged. All levels. Flame studio.

Studio artist, glass instructors at Salem Community College (NJ); other teaching: UrbanGlass (NYC), The Studio at Corning (NY); exhibitions: Glass Vegas Expo (Las Vegas).
