First cylinders by my Beginning Glassblowing students at DC GlassWorks out of the annealer. Cheers!
Bubble from class three with my Beginning Glassblowing students at DC GlassWorks.
This was our first night working with a blowpipe to test our newfound skills at gathering glass from the furnace, using blocks and working with tools like the steel marver and jacks.
Next week we'll follow (most of) the steps from this list to make cylinders!
Paperweights from class two with my Beginning Glassblowing students at DC GlassWorks!
Class two was all about getting comfortable handling more (hot) glass and using wooden blocks to shape it.
Tonight we give blowpipes a try and make our first bubbles. We'll also give the bottom of those paperweights a quick cut and polish so they sit flat.
Caterpillars and snowmen from class one with my Beginning Glassblowing students at DC GlassWorks!
Class one was all about gathering out of the 2,000 glass furnace, turning and trying out tools & equipment for the first time.
Tonight we're introducing blocks to shape the glass (and getting a taste of color with paperweights!).
