Stephanie Trenchard and Jeremy Popelka create their signature cast and blown-glass sculptural work during this special, extended demonstration in the Amphitheater Hot Shop on January 17 from 3–5 pm.

Stephanie Trenchard and Jeremy Popelka have been married and making glass together since the late 1980’s. They work together in their Sturgeon Bay, WI studio creating sand-cast glass sculptures and cast glass sculptures. Trenchard’s work focuses largely on narratives that draw on biographical content while Popelka’s work reflects his deep interest of how personal interpretations can embody larger issues of intent, symbolic meaning, and innate understanding. Together, they will demonstrate their cast and blown-glass techniques for sculptural works during their time in the Amphitheater Hot Shop.
