Making with Intent

This workshop will be a survey of flameworking techniques used to build a foundation for conceptually-driven sculpture. Working with borosilicate glass, we’ll cover networking, solid and hollow sculpting, hollow vessels, and making large work from small components using both hot and cold joints. Students will be encouraged to make work driven by ideas. We’ll also discuss portfolios, career paths, and funding projects. All levels. Code 01GB
