Working in Alaska

Working in Alaska

Hey there! Sorry I have not posted such a long time! Right now I am in Fairbanks, Alaska where I am assisting the glass master himself: Martin Janecky. He is the most incredible glass artist from the Czech Republic. This is a photo of my helping him during a class at the Toledo Museum of Art in 2012. We met at a class in Penland, NC that spring and now I am finally here assisting him with his work in Alaska! I love making my own work, however it is an amazing experience to work for someone else. You get to watch their hands create and learn from it. I will be here for two months helping Martin make his work along with another amazing glass maker, Marek Effmert, who has been assisting Martin for the last three years! I’ll post some photos next month of the pieces that he has made! In the meantime, my goals are to work hard, learn as much as possible, and enjoy the amazing Alaskan scenery!
