For most up to date look into my life, check out my Instagram:
- I will be aboard the tallship, Antigua this summer and will spend May until September 2018 in the Arctic of Svalbard/Spitsbergen.
- Sam Schumacher (Rocketworks Glass), James Friedberg and I made a portable glassblowing furnace (20lb crucible) in 2017. During my time in North Carolina in 2018 I have continued to add to the progress of the furnace with the help of fabricators at Wet Dog Glass. My goal is to take glass outside of the traditional confines of the studio setting, and allow it to be accessible in other ways. I want to be able to teach and demonstrate the art and process of glass blowing, portably. Not only will we make functional pieces, a goal of this furnace is to work experimentally and collaboratively. I would also like to work on my own art process and bring it to the outdoors to blow glass in nature, capturing the movement and forms of the natural world around us. Normally, one would have to bring nature into the studio. This way, it's possible to bring the furnace outside and truly be site specific. If you, an organization, or someone you know is interested in learning more about the furnace or having the furnace come visit to blow glass, please reach out! Email me in the 'contact' section. Thank you!
