GLSS 210 - Introduction to Contemporary Glass Practice / Hot Glass

An introduction to off-hand glass blowing techniques and contemporary glass discourse. The first half of this course will emphasize the development of an understanding of the medium through topical explorations. Learning will occur through projects, which encourage the development of conceptual approaches to the material, while exploring the properties and processes of hot glass. The student in the second portion of the course will follow a more personal direction, developing a limited range of techniques to a specific purpose. Working strategies and conceptual approaches to glass practice will be introduced in this course through discussions, demonstrations, and projects.

NOTE: This course is a co-requisite for Glass Majors and must be taken in the same semester with GLSS 212.
