EVENING LEC-MO: THE POWER OF THE HEXAGON | 5PM
From honeycombs and insect eyes to cloud formations on Saturn, hexagon shapes consistently appear in nature. But why? Paul Anders-Stout and the Hot Shop team will be on a wireless mics explaining why nature favors the hexagon shape for efficiency while demonstrating the phenomenon with glass.
Expect to see murrini formed into a hexagon, mold blowing into hexagon shapes, and a hot-sculpted addition (a glass bumble bee or other form) to the final piece.
This lec-mo is FREE for SGS members and a $10 donation for the general public. Time permitting, we will be showing a video about the history of SGS following the lec-mo…as September marks the beginning of Sonoran Glass School’s 16th year!
