Hot Glass Team: Guest Artist Demonstration

Watch Heather Spiewak, a member of the Hot Glass Demo team, demonstrate her talents as an artist in the Amphitheater Hot Shop on June 28 from 6 to 8 pm.

Spiewak will be combining two techniques — incalmo and graal — in order to create intricate patterns in glass. During her demonstration, Spiewak will apply her love of pattern found both in nature and architecture and work with the furnaces to create something that expresses her as an artist.

These demos are included in the cost of admission (kids and teens 17 and under are free).

Can't make it to the Museum? Watch the live stream! Each demonstration will be added to our YouTube channel. See the full listing of past live-streamed demonstrations, and check back for new videos soon.
