VT Glass Guild Meeting of the minds!
April, 7 2024

We are thrilled to have hosted our first lampworking/ hot glass collaboration!

Featuring:

Sally Prasch ,Who is internationally recognized as an incredible Torching artist is perhaps the perfect blend of advanced technical skill and intuitive creativity. Her background is in both scientific glassblowing and fine art. She began her career at the age of 13, with Lloyd Moore working as a part-time apprentice at the University of Nebraska and later as a Glassblowing Instructor for the City of Lincoln Recreation Department. She took workshops from some of the best glassblowers of the time, including William Bernstein, Ray Schultz, and Lino Tagliapietra.

 

Alexander Rosenberg is a New York and Philadelphia based glass artist. Alexander received his BFA in glass from Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), and Master of Science in Visual Studies from MIT. His artistic practice is rooted in the study of glass as a material, and focusing largely on the aesthetically complex properties of clear glass. Rosenberg plays with the magnifying, textural, and prismatic properties of the medium. Creating something beautiful with clear glass is one of the most challenging feats in glassblowing, and the collector is rewarded with a piece unlike found anywhere else.

 

The day explored the two different ways of working with glass and strategies used in joining them together. It was a super fun event seeing our members who could make it, and seeing the mastery of these two artists at work. We hope to find them collaborating more in the future.

As a Glass Guild Member do you have a collaborative dream?  Lets make it happen!


 

Dinner on Glass

October 7, Saturday, 5:30 p.m.

Dinner on Glass combines fine dining, glass blowing, and performance art into a dazzling and memorable feast for all the senses.

Glass artist Randi Solin’s Brattleboro studio will be the setting for diners to watch artists and chefs work together to create an exquisite multi-course meal cooked entirely on hot glass. The artists will create sizzling glass surfaces to steam open oysters, sear Vermont grass-fed beef, and poach whole fish. Dinner will be accompanied by craft cocktails, fine wine, and capped off by a delicious dessert cooked on molten glass.

This one-of-a-kind, genre-defying, culinary experience will be led by glass artist Robert DuGrenier and chef Alex Sorenson of Blank Slate Kitchen, with assistance from Solin and chef Neal Myers of Johnny Seesaw’s. Proceeds will benefit BMAC and the Vermont Glass Guild.
