G Brian Juk

See guest artist and hot glass demo team member, G Brian Juk in a live, narrated demonstration in the Amphitheater Hot Shop on June 30 from 6 to 7:30 pm.

Originally from Detroit, Mich., G Brian studied glassmaking at Alfred University in Alfred, NY. He combines blown, kiln-cast, and hot-worked solid glass to make one-of-a-kind objects. Of his utilitarian pieces, he says he loves the notion of being able to forge a connection with someone who might be drinking from a tumbler or using a candy dish that he made.

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

G Brian Juk

G Brian Juk combines techniques in blown, kiln-cast, and hot-worked solid glass to create colorful and functional glass. By making utilitarian pieces, he feels a deeper connection with the user, forging a relationship with someone who is drinking from one of his tumblers or using a candy dish. He also enjoys mixing colors to create his identifiable color schemes.
