Catherine Ayers Guest Artist Demo

Watch live as Catherine Ayers, a member of the Hot Glass Demo team, demonstrates her talents as an artist in the Amphitheater Hot Shop on August 24 from 6 to 8 pm.

Catherine Ayers was first drawn to the magic of glass when she enrolled in an introductory glassblowing class at The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass. She earned a BFA in glass at The Rochester Institute of Technology, working at The Studio during summer breaks. Ayers furthered her exploration of glass in Murano, Italy; at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Maine; and at The Sandwich Glass Museum on Cape Cod. Ayers’ whimsical and unique glass creations are inspired by her love of the ocean.

The Hot Glass Demo team of The Corning Museum of Glass consists of some of glassmaking’s most talented individuals, many of whom have worked with the world's most inspiring maestros, leading designers, and renowned firms. Together, they present more than 1,000 hot glass demonstrations a year to guests and Museum visitors.

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

Often including colorful patterns and funky shapes in her work, Ayers is constantly learning more and more about glass as a material. “What I love about the creative process with glass is that it is challenging,” said Ayers.
