See guest artist and Hot Glass Demo team member, Chris Rochelle in a live, narrated demonstration in the Amphitheater Hot Shop on June 2 from 6–7:30 pm.

A graduate of Hartwick College, Chris spent several years as an apprentice in a glass studio in Western Massachusetts and later working as a gaffer for Steuben glass here in Corning. Of glass, he says “I thrive on the constant attention it demands to push the boundary between fluid and solid state."

This demo is included in the cost of admission (kids and teens 17 and under are free).

Chris Rochelle enjoys the constant, steady focus that forming glass demands. A common thread in his work is creating tight forms with clean edges and lines, which he was trained to do throughout his time as a production glassmaker.
