Philippe Nigro: Guest Artist Demonstration

Amphitheater Hot Shop
April 22 - 26, 2019 10:00am to 12:00pm

See guest artist Philippe Nigro during live, narrated demonstrations in the Amphitheater Hot Shop April 22 through 25 from 10 am to 4 pm, and 10 am to 12 pm on April 26. Watch as Nigro and members of the Hot Glass Team bring Nigro's designs to life in the Amphitheater Hot Shop.

Living and working in France and Italy, Nigro, a product and furniture designer, likes to move between projects of different scales, whether he is designing for well-known brands or for local craftsmanship. His work is characterized by a connection between prospective research and pragmatic appreciation of the “savoir faire” of the manufacturers with whom he works.

Please note that the artist will take lunch breaks each day, so times may vary.
