Bubble Up and Drop
October 26 to 29

Thursday, Oct 26 to Sunday, Oct 29, 2017
Instructor: Brad Walker

Here’s a unique take on the drop formed vessel.  We’ll start by making bubble ups, in which glass is arranged and fired to create clear areas in a particular pattern. The resulting pieces have a series of round clear areas, spaced either in lines or randomly throughout.  Then we’ll use our bubble ups to create blanks to be dropped to form a vessel.

Students will create two different original pieces, using two different kinds of bubble up designs.  You’ll also make your own drop molds, which you’ll be able to take home after the class.

Familiarity with glass cutting and with basic fusing and slumping techniques is essential. All materials will be provided.
