Craft in Context

Using the vessel as our subject, this advanced glassblowing workshop will focus on both the act of crafting and the crafted object. Intensive studio practice sessions and demonstrations will offer participants the opportunity to sharpen glassblowing skills and refine techniques. Workshop conversations and individual meetings will address design and process development in personal and professional craft contexts. A minimum of 2-3 consecutive years of consistent glassblowing experience required.

He has taught at many institutions including the Toyama Institute of Glass Art in Japan, Haystack, and Penland. His work is widely exhibited, and is in museum collections worldwide. vetrovero.com
