CRGL 225 - Glassblowing: Form and Function

3 credits
This class will focus on traditional glass-blowing techniques. While a great emphasis will be placed on the production of vessels based on historical precedent, students will be also encouraged to use traditional craft to create non-traditional artworks. Through rigorous skill-building exercises in class and during individual practice time, students new to glassblowing will develop their hands and eyes. Students with previous glass experience will take their existing glassblowing skills to a new level of refinement. All students will use historic vessels as both a technical starting point and a springboard for creating glass components for art works. Class time will consist of short slide lectures, group discussions, hot shop demonstrations, and exercises.

Priority enrollment to Crafts & Multidisciplinary majors.
