CRGL 223 - Glassblowing: Color and Glass

3 credits
This class will focus on the use of color in both functional and sculptural glasswork. Color chemistry, the history of color development, and trends in color use in contemporary glass production will be studied. The practices of creating component parts and of assembling complex, technically-sound and chemically-stable glass objects will take place in the glass hot shop, with finishing work done in the coldworking studio. Topics to be covered will include: compatibility testing and appraisal, cane-pulling techniques for both latitudinal and longitudinal caning design, proper application of cane in hot glass work, color overlay techniques, Incalmo, or fused bubble techniques, Swedish overlay, Ariel overlay, and fire-polishing techniques.

Priority enrollment to Crafts & Multidisciplinary majors.
