In this class you will learn the fundamentals of blowing working in the hot glass studio. Emphasis will be placed on practice, to build familiarity and skill working in this magically engaging material. We will use simple forms to build confidence and basic skills while using a team approach to glass blowing. Simple color application and experimentation will be part of coursework. Also, fundamental work in cold glass techniques, grinding, cutting and polishing, and sand carving. Safety emphasized in all procedures. Lab fee required. Students will be required to provide and use simple safety glasses and other safety equipment. Open to all students, May be repeated. Course fee required. Offered fall and spring.

Intro to Warm Glass + Fusion Processes

Faculty Sungsoo Kim

Introduction to Glass Fusing, Slumping, Enameling and Casting. In this class, we will explore lots of possibilities in glass through kiln work. Throughout the semester, students will design and create 2D or 3D objects. Students will learn how to use the oven environment to simple mold systems. Physics of glass as it relates to Expansion and fitting of dissimilar glasses. Kiln environments include exercise in determining annealing schedules. Safety in all procedures require all to wear a dust mask or a respirator and eye protection every time working with plaster or any other equipment in the glass studio. Course fee required, open to all students. Course fee required. Fall and spring semesters.

Language of Materials
