Wayne Higby: Guest Artist Demonstration

Building on a tradition of collaboration, The Rockwell Museum and Corning Museum of Glass are pleased to once again team up and host a contemporary artist in Corning. This summer, we welcome ceramic artist Wayne Higby to the Amphitheater Hot Shop where he will work with glass for the very first time. Higby will collaborate with the Hot Glass team of The Corning Museum of Glass as part of the Guest Artist Series to experiment with new ideas and processes.

Higby is a ceramic artist and educator. His unique vision of the American Landscape and its manifestation in work ranging from vessel form to tile, sculpture and architectural installation has brought him international recognition. His work is in the permanent collections of numerous art museums around the world including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; and the Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo. He is a professor and the Robert C. Turner Chair of Ceramic Art at Alfred University, where he also serves as the Director and Chief Curator of the Alfred Ceramic Art Museum.
