Back to the Drawing Board
Whether you want to be a studio artist, a production glass maker, or the fabricator of your own designs, the skill of bringing two-dimensional concepts into the third dimension will be integral to your success. This class will cover design basics and the tools needed to illustrate your ideas. We’ll use hand drawing, schematics, scale drawings in Illustrator, and 3d modeling in Cinema 4d to previsualize and problem-solve before making. Using our drawings, calipers, and classic glassblowing techniques, we’ll execute our ideas as close to scale as possible, look at them critically and adjust designs as needed. Code 03GA

JUNE 19 – 23, 2017  [9am – 5pm] – Pittsburgh Glass Center
I will be co-teaching this class with Emrys Berkower.

Pulled It!
In this class we will explore and discuss various types of cane patterns and how they change and interact with various blown forms. There will be a focus on ratios, color, consistency, and control of pattern. Together, we will look beyond the basic steps of pulling and rolling up cane and closely examine subtle changes in technique and how it can dramatically alter results in patterns. We ask that you come to the class with an open mind, willingness to experiment and appreciation for failure. Some prior cane experience is required.
