Life on the Rails: Hotshop Glassblowing Techniques

All aboard! Using Steven Ciezki’s book, Life on the Rails: Intermediate Glassblowing Techniques as a guide, along with in-depth demonstrations, you can learn about many of the hidden properties of glass. Learn how to visualize success in the sketchbook and troubleshoot issues along the way, with a focus on efficient use of heat and gravity, working hotter and faster, and creating centered and symmetrical blown forms.  Basic setups and color applications for simple shapes will be used as a foundation for creative thought and artistic design. You must have at least one year of glassblowing experience and desire to refine and push basic shapes to the limit.

Key points:

  • Sketch
  • Think ahead
  • Where to focus your attention?
  • Be patient

Skill Level
