Introduction to Borosilicate Glass with Elizabeth Mears
Learn to use borosilicate glass, otherwise known as Pyrex, for sculptural work. The focus of this introductory class will be learning basic techniques for manipulating glass rods in the flame of the bench torch: making a gather, fusing two pieces of glass together, drawing out glass in a taper or a twist, making marias and transition shapes, and adding texture to other simple shapes. Learn about the different types of glass, color mixing and basic forming techniques. Fee: Jax Member $82, General Public $96.
