Gotta Make It Somehow

Approaching flameworking from a goal-oriented, project-based perspective, we’ll talk about and build things with borosilicate glass. Skill building will happen along the way, or it may be a goal in itself. Topics may include, but will not be limited to, blowing hollow forms, solid sculpting, large- and small-scale construction, hot and cold assembly, botanical and figure studies, tooling, color application, heat application, and annealing. Group or class projects are a possibility. All levels. Flame studio.

Studio artist; teaching: Pilchuck (WA), The Studio at Corning (NY), University of Oregon, Penland; Tacoma Museum of Glass residency (WA), multiple exhibitions at Austin Art Projects (CA); work published in ARTnews, New Glass Review, Contemporary Flameworking Volume III, Lampworking Volume 2: The 20th Century to the Present; past director of the Glass Art Society.
