Catherine Labonté: Guest Artist Demonstration

Watch live as Catherine Labonté unveils a new, never-before-seen glass animal during a guest artist demonstration in the Amphitheater Hot Shop on August 31 from 6 to 8 pm.

Known for her curiously cute and thoroughly whimsical glass animal creations, Labonté will be hosting Adopt-a-Glass-Pet Day in the Museum Shops prior to her guest artist demonstration. Currently living and creating in Montréal, Canada, Labonté says she hopes that the objects and characters she creates bring humor and surprise to those who see them.

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

The cartoonish glass animals Catherine Labonté creates are always a technical challenge, but she hopes the objects will evoke laughter and wonder in the viewer. What started out as sketches of Garfield from newspaper comics during her youth soon developed into Labonté‘s own feline creations. Wanting to breathe life into her cartoon drawings, she took up glassworking.
