Glass Spring One-Week Session III
April 21-27, 2019
John Croucher & Luke Jacomb
Color for Glass Nerds
This workshop will show students how to formulate glass recipes to arrive at oxide percentages, expansion coefficients, and viscosity measurements. Each day we’ll make new color to explore some of the chemistry and properties of color. We’ll cover several different color systems to give students knowledge they can use in their future practice. We’ll be joined for a day or two by local glass artist Mark Peiser. Intermediate level: glass skills required. Code S03GA
