Continuing Class (See prerequisites in description) Glass Flameworking
Extend your glass experience by learning techniques in creating open hollow forms. Monster expert Ralph McCaskey takes you on a journey in soft glass sharing secrets to creating facial expressions (if, indeed a bead could have a face) with a concentration on the eyes, thought of as windows to the soul. A brief historical look at monsters will give you a good starting point for your project. The class will wind up with embellishment techniques, such as feathers and electroforming.
