Glass Flameworking: Sculpture (Boro Glass): Using a table-top torch, glass rods are melted to a molten state, then shaped with tools and hand movements. There are two main types of flameworking glass, borosilicate (or boro) and soft. Each type of glass - boro and soft - is suited to making different types of projects based on its COE (coefficient of expansion).
Boro glass is ideal for creating sculptures and hollow forms. Glass Flameworking Sculpture classes at Arc + Flame are available as 3-Hour Samplers, 8-Hour Workshops, Multi-Session Night Courses, Date Nights and Specialty Courses.
