Loren I Plus
Class Description

Learn from one of the most talented living glass artisans and walk away with a new understanding of heat control and mastery of the torch. This is a class that you can repeat and come away with something new every time. (For those who have taken Loren I previously, we will be making a Shaded Faces Murrini.)

This course will be divided into three parts: Murrini, Sculptural Techniques, and Encasement of a paperweight.

Murrini will result in a Franchini-style face (shaded face for those who have already taken Loren I) and multitudes of various other techniques. You will start with color mixing and blending for eyes, nose and mouth cane, which will be built in the flame and then pulled down to a smaller size for component parts to construct the final face. Various other techniques will also be explored which may include letter canes to create signature canes, blowing of sea shells and many other requested secrets of the master.

Glass Sculptural Techniques will examine several different methods for achieving human body and animal sculptural forms. The techniques include cold assembly, hot sculpture, detail overlay, temperature control, tool use, drilling holes with hot tungsten pick, and the correct application of murrini.

Encasement will produce a small floral paperweight. Floral setup techniques include using blended colors, ribbed cane and overlays as components for creating leaf stock, stems, buds, ball flowers, petals, and stamen. You will then assemble and arrange the floral components into a "setup" with a quick lesson in frit making to use as a background. Students will vacuum encase a sculptural or floral setup in Schott crystal on the final day.
