Through demonstrations, assignments, and tutoring by the instructor, students are guided toward mastery in off-hand blowing. Blowing of well-balanced functional and non-functional forms is emphasized. Topics covered include the use of color in glass, two- and three-dimensional surface treatment, the relationship between volume and skin of forms, blowing into molds, and working in a variety of scales. The aesthetics of contemporary and historical glass are investigated as they relate to the student’s work. Formerly CR 231A
