The Glass program is informed by the material properties of glass and its history in decorative art, science and industry. Students develop dexterity with glass through hands-on courses that include both technical and experimental investigations. Beginning freshman year, students work in state-of-the-art facilities with individual studio space. The curriculum offers extensive instruction in freehand glassblowing, mold blowing, kiln casting, hot casting and coldworking. A rigorous technical curriculum coupled with individualized studio practice helps students develop innovative and expressive approaches to glassmaking informed by a contemporary art and design context. Sculpture, functional objects, lighting, installation and vessels are among the many possibilities for student explorations.
