Loren I (5 days)This course will be divided into three parts: Murrini, Sculptural Techniques and Encasement. Murrini will result in a Franchini-style shaded face and your signature cane. You will start with color mixing and blending which will be used to make shaded colors for a face. Eyes, nose and mouth cane will by built in the flame and then pulled down to a smaller size for component parts to construct the final face. In a like manner, letter canes will be assembled to create signature canes. 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. A Stumpsucker will be used to vacuum encase a sculptural or floral setup in Schott crystal.
