Thanks to a Scholarship awarded to me from the Royal College of Art I was lucky enough to experience an amazing two weeks at Corning Museum of Glass and take part in the course ColourXFrom. This class was instructed by Anna Riley who was supported by teaching assistant Courtney McCloskey, both extremely talented glass blowers based in Brooklyn. Focusing on colour application in glass and the marriage between colour and form meant that I was able to experiment with techniques that I've not had the time to try back home.
The photograph above is a screen shot from the live stream demonstration of Anna Riley making an incalmo rondel which you can watch on the Museum's website by following this link.
Breaking things is bound happen when learning new techniques, this is not always a bad thing! By dropping this piece on the floor I could see the potential in the use of cold working to show off the internal curve that I had created.
