Stackin’ Rings and Things
This class will encompass the hot and cold assemblage of smaller glass parts made in the hot shop by use of a pickup oven, fitted (unattached) joints, and/or HXTAL (permanent) joints.
Hot shop demonstrations will revolve around simple to complex blown shapes to build structures.
The versatility of interior rings, exterior rings, and lip folds will expand upon our vocabulary of new and exciting opportunity with shape design.
The class will be encouraged to create smaller parts with the intention of building a larger architecturally influenced structure. Bar/rod color application will be taught as well as how to go about sizing fitted shapes with calipers.

Steven Ciezki’s artistic journey is represented by twenty years of drawing and nine years of glassblowing, painting, and photography. He received his BFA in glass at Illinois State University in 2012.
Glass has taken Steven to all corners of the country as a student, teacher, and professional glass artist. Teaching opportunities in Arizona ultimately led to the creation of his book Life on the Rails: Intermediate Glassblowing Techniques. The title describes both his nomadic lifestyle as well as the rails at the bench where hot glass is shaped by hand.
