some conventional and oft-avoided techniques to create sculptural
components made of glass. Learn how to use a ladle for its intended (and
unintended) purpose and methods of creating thick glass shapes. We will

the wild as we dive into a world of non-traditional methods to create
luminous, tubular, artisanal lightbulbs! Students will learn a few of
the basic bends that make up most of the neon seen in the world. We will
then learn a few tricks to bypass over a hundred years of commercial
signage glass standards, and get straight to creating three dimensional,
neon tangles for sculptural purposes. In the end, we will have the
tools to induce sublime environments of curated electromagnetic waves,
chaotic flameworked illusions of movement, and soothing fields of color
that envelop the viewer.

have a party! We have lots of clear glass and love mirrors! Students
will explore a traditional silvering process to mirrorize three
dimensional glass in a variety of shapes. We will use industrial
strength chemicals to imbue plain, clear, blown, glass shapes with
precious metal magic. In this party, we will explore some unique
properties that pertain to glass that other reflective materials
struggle to capture. Come with an open mind, waterproof smocks, boots
and bring some glass of your own and some drinks for later.
