Meet the Artist: Michael Rogers

This Meet the Artist lecture by Michael Rogers was recorded on March 29, 2007. Michael Rogers combines glass and found objects in his symbolically-charged work. There is a strong literary character to his vessels and sculpture, which are often covered in writing. The words are sometimes quotes from authors who are an inspiration to Rogers, such as James Joyce and Vladimir Nabokov, or they are anonymous, such as the characters on the fragments of Japanese newspaper that enshroud Rogers' 13 Crows. Rogers is currently a Professor in the Glass Program of the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences at the Rochester Institute of Technology.
