Lecture.
Glass artists, Jiří Harcuba and April Surgent.
This lecture was filmed as part of The Museum's popular Meet the Artist series at The Corning Museum of Glass, June 24, 2010.
Jiri Harcuba, a renowned artist and educator, is known for his simple, yet elegant, portraits in glass. He treats all his subjects in a similar fashion, using spare sculptural cuts and subtle optical effects to create their individual profiles. His student and emerging artist, April Surgent, takes a photographic and painterly approach to engraving, using her own photography--many of urban environments--as her image sources. After fusing sheets of glass, she "develops" the images by grinding the glass to reveal the neutral and colorful underlayers.
