Flameworking: Form and Concept

Amy Lemaire

Have an idea you’d like to develop in the flameworking studio? Want to try filling a hollow form with neon, add some glass components to your work, or experiment with drawing with glass? Focused on contextualizing flameworking within contemporary sculpture, this workshop is geared towards artist’s crossing over from other disciplines that would like to translate their ideas into glass. The goal of the class is to complete two finished sculptures, which are both structurally sound and conceptually tight. Blending traditional and unconventional flameworking techniques, students are encouraged to explore the material and expand their artistic vocabulary. The coursework will include a combination of technical exercises designed to improve hand skills, contextual presentations, group critique, and optional guided visits to museums and galleries in NYC. Whether you’re an artist working in another medium, or experienced with glass, class is designed to be accessible to makers of all levels.

Week one: Drawings, improvisations, and solid forms

Week two: Working hollow: sculptural techniques, and plasma filled forms.

This class runs Monday through Friday.
