In Full Bloom: The Rose, with Craig Mitchell Smith

January 21-25, 2022. 9am-5pm. 

In this intensive five-day class, students will learn all of Craig’s tips, tricks, and treasures to make this multi-layer rose blossom sculpture in the color of their choosing. Students will learn diamond carving, powdering, and custom texture mold making. Students will be introduced to complex draping techniques to simultaneously drape several layers of glass. The result will be a finished gallery-quality piece for wall or table similar to a piece Craig Mitchell Smith currently sells for the same cost as this class. This class is for experienced fused glass artists.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

As a self-taught artist, my curiosity and creativity have taken me in many directions over the years. I am a painter; I have done interior and garden design throughout the U.S., set design for local theaters and floral design. I have also designed weddings throughout the U.S. and in England. In late 2005, I found glass. I started with making glass jewelry, but soon felt limited by the size and dimension. I moved quickly to glass sculpture because I liked the freedom of expression and scale. For me, the transparency of glass is a metaphor for memory. Even though the glass sculpture or design stays the same, if you move around the piece, or change the direction of the light or its intensity, you can change the memory. My designs often include the interplay of glass, light and water and range from garden sculptures to sculptural drawings, to portraits in glass, to wall hangings.
