Fred Kahl, or ‘The Great Fredini’ as he is known, is a New York City-based artist (and magician) who has spent several years pioneering techniques in 3-D scanning and CNC (Computer Numerical Control) carving. Working at the intersection of art, entertainment, and science, Kahl explores ways to combine new technologies with more traditional glassmaking processes, to invoke awe and wonder in the audiences he engages.
