Glass A Summer Session 3

Glass Summer Session 3
June 19–July 1
Kim Harty
Glass Somatics

Glassblowing engages the entire body and the five senses. This workshop will investigate the ways that somatics can guide the artistic act of glass making. We’ll explore the relationship between glass making and muscle memory, choreography, hand-eye coordination, and spatial awareness. Students will learn traditional and experimental approaches to hot glass and will also work with drawing, photography, and video. Technical information will include glassblowing, assemblage, mirroring, sand casting, and basic kilnforming. All levels. Hot glass studio.

Chair of craft and material studies and section head and assistant professor of glass at the College for Creative Studies (Detroit); exhibitions: Design Museum Gent (Belgium), Chrysler Museum (VA), Toledo Museum (OH), Corning Museum (NY); writing published Glass Quarterly, Detroit Research, various museum catalogs.
