CRGL 222 - Glass: Material, Meaning and Metaphor

3 credits
“In this class, students will explore the plasticity, malleability and responsiveness of hot glass. Hollow and solid-forming techniques will be introduced in the hot shop; construction considerations of larger, non-functional glass assemblies will be introduced and refined; non-traditional combinations of glass with common metals and other materials will be covered. These exercises will result in a series of site-specific installations of both individual and group design. Students will be challenged to expand their sense of scale, to explore unconventional display alternatives, and to develop their resourcefulness in accommodating the demands of installing glasswork outside the gallery setting.”

Priority enrollment to Crafts & Multidisciplinary majors.
