Techniques in Studio Glass
Layne Rowe is a practising artist who combines contemporary ideas with traditional techniques. 'The have been many changes over the past 2,000 years concerning the making of glass, yet traditional techniques are still practised,' he told the Art Fund. 'The are various techniques that can be used whilst the glass is hot, including blowing, sculpting and a variety of colour applications. Once the glass has booled, techniques can be explored such as grinding, cutting and polishing. The execution of these processes will define the finished object.'
