Glass A Summer Session 4

Glass Summer Session 4
July 5-17, 2020
Nancy Callan & Mel Douglas

Glass is a fantastic medium for finding new ways to bend space, stretch time, and renew a sense of wonder. This workshop will explore the linear complexities and the unique spatial qualities of glass. Working in the hot and cold shops, students will be challenged to look at the relationship of form, pattern, balance, and design. Through a combination of traditional and experimental techniques, we’ll develop objects that merge surface and drawing so the form is not just a canvas but a three-dimensional drawing itself. Intermediate level: two years hot glass experience required. Code 04GA
