Micke Johansson: Guest Artist Demonstration

See guest artist Micke Johansson during a live, narrated demonstration in the Amphitheater Hot Shop on July 12 from 6 to 8 pm.

Micke Johansson is a master glassblower and designer from Sweden. At 16 years old, Johansson started to work at Orrefors glassworks where he continued honing his craft for the next 15 years. He became a master glassblower at Orrefors at the age of 24.

Johansson has been working from his own studio since 2007. From there, he produces all of his own glass designs. He focuses on glass techniques and specializes in "old Swedish" techniques like Ariel, Graal, and the Swedish overlay.

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