This course builds on previous skills in stained glass design and introduces glass fusing and sandblasting and explores ways to integrate the two into designs. Attention will be paid to both technical proficiency and to building awareness and understanding of the use of light in glasswork and potentials of using glass in specific settings. After an initial series of introductory exercises, students will be work at their own pace and within tutor-set constraints to make a series of small sample pieces and one or more resolved works in glass. Students will be encouraged to combine techniques in novel ways.
