The blown glass vessel is one of the most beautiful things to achieve.  The interplay of air, fire, and the deft spin of the artisan combine into a subtle art.  In this class we will make many miniature vessels, starting with small bowls and moving onto footed dishes and goblets (time allowing).  This is a class for those with some experience with lampworking glass.  The blown form can be one of the most challenging aspects of Lampworking. Difficulty: Intermediate/ Advanced
