See guest artist Austin Stern during live, narrated demonstrations in the Amphitheater Hot Shop March 18 through 21 from 10 am to 4 pm. Watch as Stern, assisted by members of the Hot Glass Team in the Amphitheater Hot Shop, expands on his Little Monsters series with new techniques, including experimental cane and murrine.
Living and working in Seattle, Stern is inspired by the patterns found in nature and the world of fashion, as well as the playful nature of cartoons and toys. He uses bright and highly saturated colors to explore how we cope with our anxieties and fears.
Please note that the artist will take lunch breaks each day, so times may vary.

At the Hot Glass Show, watch live, narrated, glassmaking demonstrations, and see master glassblowers create stunning pieces before your eyes.
