This series of E-courses is designed for experienced sculptors in order to learn how to create large sculptures in component form in borosilicate glass


This E_course is a stand alone course, but it is designed as a follow on from the

Julie 2: Sculpting the figure course. Our Julie 3 course will build upon the techniques learnt in Julie 2 using the figure to further develop your sculptural learning curve in the comfort of your own studio. During these six 1 hour weekly zoom sessions we will look at all the fiddly bits: arms, hands, fingers, feet and toes. We will also work on creating realistic heads with features. We will not create highly detailed faces but beautifully stylised ones with bone structure and grace. Too much face detail runs a distinct risk of ones figures looking cartoonish, not something Zurich Glass School wishes to teach their participants. We will examine proportion in-depth and learn the foundational blocks to creating large scale figures in borosilicate glass.


By the end of this E_course you will feel like you can take on the world in terms of your figure making. Expect to have your eyes opened and your hands twitching with the new knowledge trickling through them. Please remember, what we are creating is tricky and takes practice, logic, patience and an inquiring mind.


This course will be big, hot, heavy and advanced. It is recommended you should begin class by starting with a figure half the size of Dr. Denton's and building up to big, over time. This course will push your skill level and give you confidence in your own abilities, and to own other types of sculpture with borosilicate.


You will also receive a complimentary one on one consultation with the maestro to help you through the tricky bits. It is advisable to use this as our participants find them invaluable.
