The American Studio Glass movement began in the mid-1960s giving artists the foundation to design and produce original work of art from glass. For the past 50 years the movement has had rapid developments, putting glass at the forefront of contemporary art and craft. The glass art community continues to grow in new directions while holding on to its traditions. The glass program at Palomar College offers an array of courses for students to explore the creative potential of this amazing material.
The glass curricula focus on the development of students’ understandings of the craft and sculptural approaches of glassblowing, kilnforming (casting/slumping/fusing), and stained glass. Our studio offers complete hot, warm, and cold glass facilities that allow for a wide range of course-directed research and investigation. Traditional methods are promoted as a means to develop glass production skills, while a focus is directed toward the creative growth and artistic development of each student.
