James Mongrain Guest Artist Demo

Amphitheater Hot Shop
February 15 - 19, 2016 10:00am to 4:00pm
Opaque and Transparent Modern Venetian by James Mongrain

James Mongrain brings his talent for Venetian and traditional Italian forms, specifically goblets, to the Amphitheater Hot Shop February 15–19 from 10 am–12 pm and 1–4 pm.

James Mongrain was born in Minnesota and introduced to glass while attending Moorhead State University. He was able to study under his brother, Jeff Mongrain, an internationally known artist. Though he’s studied and worked all around the country, one thing remains constant for Mongrain; his proficiency and talent for goblet making. He focuses on the technicality of the traditional Venetian technique, an aesthetic that continues to be his muse.

See master gaffer James Mongrain and our Hot Glass Demonstration team explore the traditional Venetian and Italian forms during Mongrain’s extended stay as a guest artist in our Amphitheater Hot Shop.
