2012 Glass Studio Visiting Artist Series

The 2012 Chrysler Museum Glass Studio Visiting Artist Series brought some of the world’s top glass art talent to the Hampton Roads area. A special nod goes to Lino Tagliapietra, who helped us break in our Studio with a visit during the very first week we were open.

Nov. 14–18: April Surgent

April Surgent brings a modern take to traditional glass cameo art and her work is prized by collectors. As part of our Glass Studio Visiting Artist Series, an exhibition of her work ran from Nov. 14 to Dec. 30, 2012, and she worked live in our Glass Studio from Nov. 14-18, 2012.

To hear the artist describe the process in her own words, here’s a video that was produced by the Museum of Glass in Tacoma (and we thank the museum for the use of the video). To see pictures of her Studio visit, scroll down.

2012 Glass Studio Visiting Artist Series De la Torre brothers

Sept. 19–23: Einar and Jamex de la Torre

From Sept. 19-23, 2012, Einar and Jamex de la Torre worked live in our Studio, wowing the audience with intricately detailed works of glass sculptural art. The pieces were crafted colorful bit by colorful bit, and the amount of detail in many of the pieces was a sight to behold.

Active in the glass art world since the 1980s, the de la Torres have exhibited their work in France, Japan, Canada, Germany, Venezuela, and Brazil—as well as in the U.S. and Mexico—and their work is in the permanent collections of some of the finest glass art institutions in the world.

The brothers also provided a special treat for a student field trip from a Spanish class—a demo conducted entirely en espanol.

July 11–15: John Miller

Super-sized Fast-food and Diner Staples Created in Blown Glass

Beer glasses, donuts, chicken wings, ice cream cones — John Miller had our Glass Studio audience eating out of his hands while working in our studio. His use of fast food as inspiration for glassed food turned out to be incredibly popular.

Miller, who heads the glass department at Illinois State University, has worked on the staff and faculty of Pilchuck Glass School and in 1998 was awarded the C.G.C.A. Fellowship at Wheaton Village in Millville N.J. His work is in the collections of the Corning Museum of Glass, the Museum of Arts and Design, New York, and the Museum of Glass, Tacoma.

2012 Glass Studio Visiting Artist Series Debora Moore at work

Apr. 25–39: Debora Moore

Debora Moore brought her exquisitely textured style of floral glass designs to Glass Studio audiences, and her Chrysler exhibition of such works was positively received.

Moore has worked in glass since the late 1980s. Her awards and exhibitions include the prestigious Rakow Commission and the Glasmuseet Ebeltoft. She has studied at both the Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle and the Pilchuck Glass School.
