Intentions & Inventions

In this design-based workshop, students will pursue the creation of thoughtful objects. Assignments will lead to material research and problem solving with the larger goal of developing an innovative vocabulary of techniques. Along with blowing and forming on the pipe, moldblowing will be an important aspect of the workshop. We’ll cover mold design and tooling, exploring the use of wood, plaster, graphite, metal, rubber, and wax. These projects will enable less experienced students to create distinctive works while posing challenging opportunities for more advanced students. While our work will be centered in the hot shop, students will be encouraged to use the cold, kiln, and flame studios in creating their work. Guest instructor Peter Drobny will join us for a week. All levels. Code S00GA
