Mark Matthews: Live Stream Guest Artist Demonstration

Amphitheater Hot Shop
February 17, 2019 10:00am to 12:00pm

See guest artist Mark Matthews during a live, narrated demonstration in the Amphitheater Hot Shop on February 17 from 10 am to 12 pm. Watch as Matthews brings one of his fanciful glass figures to life with the help of the Museum's Hot Glass Team. Watch on cmog.org or The Corning Museum of Glass Facebook page when the event is live.

Inspired by the rich, 5,000-year-old history of glass, Matthews works in a small studio exploring all the ways radically different designs and techniques can be used in a single form: the sphere. Matthews also uses tools and equipment that he’s developed specifically for the creation of his spheres. Why the sphere? He says: “For me, the sphere is a device that unifies my radically diverse explorations in glass.”
