John Zinner: Guest Artist Demonstration

Amphitheater Hot Shop
April 30, 2019 10:00am to 4:00pm
Flameworker John Zinner makes a glass skeleton

See guest artist John Zinner during a live, narrated demonstration in the Amphitheater Hot Shop on April 30 from 10 am to 4 pm. Watch as Zinner, a flameworker from Lauscha, Germany, creates a new figurative sculpture inspired by mythical creatures and nature. 

Born into a family with a history of several generations of glassmakers, Zinner began his career making the traditional Christmas ornaments for which Lauscha is famous. Since then, he has become known for his solid, figurative sculptures of demons and other sinister creatures.

Please note that the artist will take a lunch break, so times may vary.
