Museum of Glass residency – Summer 2017

I am pleased to announce that I have been selected as one of the Artists in Residence for the Tacoma Museum of Glass in 2017. I will be kicking off their Sheldon Levin Memorial Residency for artists inspired by the intersection of art and science.

The project I will work on extends the Pearl Flask project begun for the exhibition Whereabouts at Glazenhuis in Lommel Belgium in 2016.

Here is a fragment from my application:

At the Museum of Glass I would continue my project called “Pearl Flasks” – objects that use glass, oil, dry ice, sound and video to create an alchemical spectacle of self-generating, shimmering jewels. My goal is to extend this concept, which was first realized using industrial lab glass, to the hot shop where new idiosyncratic objects could develop with the input of the Museum’s crew.
