This three week session will focus on form and forming techniques using blown glass elements. The primary blown forms such as the sphere, cylinder, and cone will be explored as a primary skill set. Students then will begin to develop a language of functional forms using this geometric foundation and the inherent material properties of clear and colored glass. Open to all levels.
