Jen Violette Guest Artist Demonstration (August 9, 2018)

Watch Jen Violette craft a large cactus out of glass in the Amphitheater Hot Shop. See the final piece starting at 2:29:14. Violette began creating in early childhood, inspired by her grandparents who were studio artists themselves. Now she lives on a small farm in Vermont and is inspired by the natural land. Much of her work focuses on her own vegetable and perennial gardens.

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.
