In this class, students will make bottle and vase forms with an emphasis on elongated necks. The course will focus on three methods of stretching the neck: on the pipe, on the punty, and by using gravity. Students will learn to set up their bubbles, practice heat control, and learn different techniques for puntying, tweezing, trimming, and the fundamentals of creating handles. This is a great intermediate step for beginning glass blowers looking to further their skills, while gaining the fundamental knowledge of how to make classic amphora vases, and more.
