Hot sculpting
Liquid glass can be a cantankerous material to sculpt. This class will focus on techniques to give you more control over the blob of hot material on the end of your blowpipe. We will be exploring the use of torches, assembling techniques, use of the garage, color application, cane drawing, inside sculpting, specialised punties…
We will be working with both solid and hollow forms, with each their own possibilities and limitations.
You need a mess of help to stand alone. Hot sculpting is all about teamwork. We will be working closely together in teams to help each other realise our ideas.
