Why do we make what we make? Every object made in glass is simultaneously an imitation and an original. Workshop participants will explore these ideas, as well as their personal motivations, while working in the hotshop and in daily group discussions. Participants will blow and sculpt using traditional and innovative techniques to experiment with process and concept. Finishing techniques, including cold working and installation, will be demonstrated and discussed. Emphasis will be on experimentation, but students will accomplish finished works of modest size. Beginning skills in hot glass required. Technical Assistant needed.
