Soft Glass Sculpture

DSC_40491

This workshop is intended for intermediate to advanced flame workers who wish to expand into the world of soft glass sculpture. Beau will demonstrate and guide students through specific techniques that allow for the building of separate forms, and then the combination of them into larger self standing sculptures. The process comes from an Italian tradition, by which the mass of molten glass is gathered and shaped by using knives , tweezers and other tools; all the while paying attention to proper heating and cooling. The flame advances progressively forward as the piece is built, making it possible to go larger than is typically done with torch work. Potential forms students may be creating include animals, trees, humans, birds, fish, flowers or other flowing images from nature. For more information and photos, go to www.beauxbead.com.

Beau Anderson was introduced to the torch by his mother, Sage, at the young age of seven. Although he has diverse interests, Beau’s focus within glass art has explored beadmaking and its history; as well as integrative multi-media projects. He has demonstrated and instructed the art of glass beadmaking throughout the Americas, both at a grassroots level and at such prestigious institutions as Corning Museum of Glass, Pittsburgh Glass Center and Pilchuck Glass School; as well as internationally in France, Germany, Denmark and Spain. Beau’s work has been published in Ornament magazine; as well as in Beads of Glass, Beading for the Soul and The History of Beads.
