A drop-out vessel is created by slumping a piece of glass through an elevated mold with a hole in the center. The part of the glass that “drops” through the hole can stretch considerably, significantly informing the design of the finished piece. Coldworking to remove the rim further transforms the piece
In this 2 days innovative workshop, you will focus on how to design, create, and cold work a beautiful drop vessel form, step by step, successfully.
You will use glass powder, stringers. sheet of glass and more and will learn how to cold work your vessels.
