About the Event:

Through the course of instructor demonstrations and guided, hands-on practice time, students will use the goblet as a form to expand their skills with both hollows and solids in borosilicate glass on the torch.  Making goblets requires the ultimate control of the material.  By learning to control specific cup, stem, and foot forms, students will increase their efficiency and accuracy with all forms they may wish to pursue.  A comprehensive variety of cup, stem, and foot forms, as well as different styles of attachments and color applications will be covered.  

  

About the Instructor:

Eric Goldschmidt is the Properties of Glass Programs Supervisor at The Corning Museum of Glass. He has been working with flameworked glass since 1996, when his roommate introduced him to the torch. Since then, he has studied with and assisted many of the world’s most talented glass artists. These experiences have given him a vast array of techniques from which to draw. He combines this wealth of knowledge with his own interests in the subtle energies of the natural world, delicate forms, and intricate color application to create original new works. Previous to his current position, Goldschmidt was the resident flameworker at The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass and a flameworker for Arribas Brothers Company at Disney World.
