Study Abroad: Cane and Murrine Mastery in Murano | 4.14
Studying Venetian glassblowing techniques is considered an important step in a glassblower’s skill development and professional practice. The goal of this intensive review of Venetian glass techniques with a well-known maestro is to practice complicated traditional designs to express contemporary ideas in glass. Students will learn intricate techniques, including zanfirico, incalmo, reticello, and murrine, used to produce precisely blown and sculpted objects, from small bowls to large free-form works. Students will work with the maestro and have the unique opportunity to develop glassmaking skills with high degree of accomplishment. Students should be well-versed in glass working and want the challenge of refining their skills through keen observation and daily studio time. Italian translation and assistance in Murano is available.
Lodging is available beginning on 4.13. Classes are 4.14-4.18. A tour will be given on 4.19.
