This course introduces students to fundamental skills and contextual knowledge for working with molten glass in a contemporary visual arts and/or design context.

Students will learn to manipulate and transform hot glass in response to set projects across areas of glass blowing, hot glass casting, and cold working. They will also develop knowledge of historical underpinnings for glass in contemporary practices though lectures, seminar discussions, and contextual research. This course supports materials and ideas explorations through the interface of embodied learning and conceptual inquiry.
