Plants and Animals

Students will learn the art of plant and animal making by using glass lampworking with a gas torch, hand tools, and borosilicate glass. Hand-applied, dots, stripes, wings, gold foil and colorful swirls will be used to embellish individual sculptures. Through a combination of instructor demonstrations and hands-on exercises, participants will make several pieces of their own to take home.
All glass making materials provided. Class size limit 6. Students should have taken flameworking class prior.
I am originally from Minnesota. Coming out here as a kid in the winters inspired me to finally stay living here. After spending many years of traveling back and forth from Alaska to here blowing glass in both places I now call this home! I have been blowing glass for the last 16 years. I have been teaching flameworking for the last 4 years here at the art association. I really love bright colors and animals. This area has such great beauty and so many animals it really inspires me to create fun and funky work in art.
