Glass B Summer Session 1

Glass Summer Session 1

May 29–June 3

Earl Jr.
Functional Fundamentals

This beginning flameworking workshop will teach students how to make a basic hand pipe out of borosilicate glass, including safety, basic studio setup, glass terminology, and the tools and techniques involved. We’ll cover pulling points, shaping the tubing, pressing the bowl, blowing out the carb, and ways to open the mouthpiece. As the session progresses, we’ll add some entry-level color applications such as silver fuming, stringers, raking, and basic dot patterns. Students will leave the workshop with the ability to make a pipe. Beginning level. Flameworking studio.

Studio artist; teaching SiNaCa Studios (TX), DFW Art Glass (TX), Zen Glass Gallery (FL); demonstrator at 2021 GAS conference; recent exhibition: Stoked CT (CT).
