Have you ever wondered what’s going through an artist’s mind as they’re making a piece in our Amphitheater Hot Shop? Here’s your chance to ask them directly. Join us on YouTube as we host our Watch with the Artist online event series.

For our next online event, watch with Blown Away finalist Janusz Poźniak on Wednesday, May 27 at 1:00 pm EDT, live on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwXW1fbC6ac

The artist will be available to chat and answer your questions in real time as we watch this demonstration together.

Janusz Poźniak’s work is aesthetically described as pushing the boundaries beyond form and function to abstractly reflect his own personal experiences and distill human emotion. In this live stream, watch Poźniak make a cup out of hot glass with a vibrant murrine pattern. To see more examples of his completed works, visit his website at www.januszpozniak.com.

We at the Corning Museum of Glass are bringing you this exciting new series of live online events as a way for our communities to connect with glassmakers and world-class visiting Guest Artists.

Unable to watch the live event? Find hundreds of hours of live streamed demonstrations on the Corning Museum of Glass YouTube channel, and check back for new videos soon.
