See guest artist Mark Matthews during a live, narrated demonstration in the Amphitheater Hot Shop on February 18 from 10 am to 12 pm and 1 to 4 pm.

Inspired by the rich, 5,000-year-old history of glass, Mark Matthews first began working with molten glass in 1974 while an undergraduate student at Kent State University. Now, he works in a small studio, typically with one assistant, exploring all the ways radically different designs and techniques can be used in a single form: the sphere. Matthews also uses tools and equipment that he’s developed specifically for the creation of his spheres. Why the sphere? He says: “For me, the sphere is a device that unifies my radically diverse explorations in glass.”

These demos are included in the cost of admission (kids and teens 17 and under are free).
