Notes: 
VHS.
DVD.
The first lecture presented by Tina Oldknow is an overview of the American Studio Glass Movement and how it was influenced by Italian glassblowers. In the beginning of this movement technology posed a major problem for emerging studio glass artists. A group of artists went to Venice in hopes to learn from glass masters and found that only Venini opened its doors to them. Pilchuck in turn invited Italian glass artists to come to their school to teach. As a result, Lino Tagliapietra came with an open attitude and willing to share. The second presentation is by Preston Singletary, the recipient of the Rakow Commission. Singletary is a glass artist living in Seattle, Washington, and a descendent of a Tlingit clan of Southeastern Alaska. His work is imbued with American artistic traditions of the Pacific Northwest Coast and his native background.
