Recycled Cup Set
Introduction to Glass & Blowing - GLASS-100-02 with Nathan Watson
2018 - September 18
Having never handled glass outside of glassware/drinkware from home or elsewhere, I was eager to dive into the world that is glass and blowing. Apparently, glass isn’t something you can do everywhere. California College of the Arts is one of the few colleges in the United States that offers a Bachelors in Fine Arts in Glass. I had the privilege of having Nathan Watson, a senior glass professional, having over a decade and a half in glass experience. Nate is currently a working artist, lecturer at CCA and the Executive Director at Public Glass (https://www.publicglass.org). A brilliant teacher, the first assignment he gave to us was to create a unique cup set out of wine bottles. I had decided to go for fusion of Mid-Evil Chalice for the form and Art Deco inspired patterns. This is how it came out.
