Pilchuck Glass School

Seattle, Wasington, USA
Instructor Session 3 –  July 1st – 18th 2008
Awareness of form, aesthetics, and the intrinsic merits of glass – optic, texture and tactility – is the essential to the Scandinavian artistic process. Using the blown form as a starting point, this course will spotlight the Scandinavian glassmaking and design tradition. Daily demos will center on Swedish glassblowing techniques. A broad range of lectures and discussion about Scandinavian form and design, both historical and contemporary, will inspire students to use their personally developed language of form. Emphasis on the creative process, instruction and critique will give the beginning student inspiration and technical know-how.
