GLAS 225 Glassblowing: Form and Function

College of Art, Media & Design School of Art

3 credits 90.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

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.

Prerequisites Complete 12 credits from subjects IMAG, TIME, OBJT and ENVI or FYWT*101 or FYWT*112

This course may be repeated for credit.
