CLASS DESCRIPTION
Learn how to use various colors of boro glass frits to create vibrant glass art pieces. Students will learn layering, color blending, fades, and texturing as well as "implosion" techniques. All of these skills will then be used to transform solid glass rods into beautiful wearable glass art pendants.

 

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Glass blower and lamp-worker TOMMY GARRISON was born and raised on the Mendocino Coast. Being drawn to challenging self expressive artistic outlets at an early age, he naturally got involved in drumming, surfing and fine woodworking. In 2001 a fellow surfer and glass artist introduced Tommy to the world of glass through the form of lampworking and he has never looked back. Since 2001 Tommy has finished a two-year apprenticeship at Buzz Glass as a production prep worker and an artistic embellisher/finisher. Aside from working as a glass blowing and lampworking instructor he has also owned and operated several local glass art manufacturing and retail businesses. Over the years Tommy has studied and practiced many glass blowing and lampworking techniques. Some of these techniques include sculpting solid and hollow forms, bead, pendant, and marble making as well as drinking vessels and pipe making. Tommy currently works out of his own home studio creating functional glass art, pendants and sculpted glass sea creatures.
