Borosilicate glass gets its name from the element boron, which is added as a flux to create an American hard glass.  A melt that occurs at a hotter temperature, boro is well suited for sculptural glass endeavors.  In this introduction to sculpture on the torch, students will learn the fundamentals of turning glass shapes into small turtles. Learn to create seals, how to make a button and pick up frit, heating out tool marks and how to strike color.
