Mystery Mold

Thaddeus Wolfe

Glass has the unique ability to take on the shape of a mold it is blown into, then freeze and hold its new form. This class will focus on the skills and techniques needed to blow glass into a wide variety of molds. Learn how to properly set up your bubble for different shapes, post gather, and work with color in conjunction with the design of your piece. Students will be provided with wood, metal, cork, and clay molds to utilize and practice with. The final day of class will feature a group of hot blow molds made by Thaddeus - choose a mystery mold and blow!

This class is being offered as part of our 40 for 40 series, a celebration of the 40th anniversary of UrbanGlass.
