More Information

See guest artist John Zinner during a live, narrated demonstration in the Amphitheater Hot Shop on April 30 from 10 am to 4 pm. Watch as Zinner, a flameworker from Lauscha, Germany, creates a new figurative sculpture inspired by mythical creatures and nature. 

Born into a family with a history of several generations of glassmakers, Zinner began his career making the traditional Christmas ornaments for which Lauscha is famous. Since then, he has become known for his solid, figurative sculptures of demons and other sinister creatures.

Please note that the artist will take a lunch break, so times may vary.
