Austin Stern Guest Artist Demonstration

Watch Austin Stern's live stream demonstration from the March 21 2300° event. See the final piece out of the annealer starting at 2:01:08. Living and working in Seattle, Stern is inspired by the patterns found in nature and the world of fashion, as well as the playful nature of cartoons and toys. He uses bright and highly saturated colors to explore how we cope with our anxieties and fears.

The Guest Artist Series features world-class visiting artists at work in the Amphitheater Hot Shop. These special, extended demonstrations provide a fascinating peek at the techniques, artistry, and improvisation that comprise contemporary glassmaking. Our own Hot Glass Demo Team assists and narrates for each artist, answering audience questions in real time.
