Lampworking with Loren Stump

Q: I just found that Loren Stump is going to be teaching at the Corning Museum of Glass in May, 1996. The class is entitled "Advanced Moretti Techniques" and he will be sharing some of his secret techniques in three different one-day classes.

A: Sounds great! I would love to hear more. I have seen Loren's work in Bead & Button Magazine, as well as the annual Beady issue of Lapidary Journal. The 4th annual Hot Glass Horizons '96 in an intensive three-day conference featuring hands-on instruction in a variety of hot glass and kiln forming techniques. This program features 15 exciting classes taught by some of the country's premiere educators including Gil Reynolds, Linda Scott, Kevin O'Grady, Loren Stump, Don McKinney, Rodi Rovner, David Buck, Jayne Persico, Steve Hughey, Newy Fagan, Shirley Webster, Judy Lee, Darlene Johnson, and Debra VanTol. This conference is at the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York. The brochure I received goes on to say..."Loren Stump - Advanced Moretti Techniques. Many of you may be familiar with Loren's incredible face murrini (you can see them in the Corning Museum). They are some of the best ever made. He is an excellent instructor and he will be sharing some of his secret techniques in three different one-day classes. They are titled Encased Flowers and Color Blending, Advanced Sculptural Techniques, and Advanced Moretti Techniques. You can register for one, two, or all three of these classes. Lampworking experience is required for each of these classes."
