Bring the Heat: Eric Goldschmidt creates a flameworked figure

There’s something magical about watching a master at work. Unparalleled expertise and skillful execution combine to inspire awe in anyone who observes an artist “in the zone.” Glassmakers who work in the Museum’s Amphitheater Hot Shop are some of the world’s most talented artists working in glass—and they’re ready to bring the heat in a new series of demonstrations that features individual artists and their A-games. During each demo, an artist will proudly present a personal design they’ve worked to perfect, and will be live on the mic to answer audience questions in real time—a rarity for live artist demonstrations, and a first at the Museum. Eric Goldschmidt will be making a stylized figure at the torch and answering your questions live. See the final figure starting at 2:07:28. Find the full schedule of glassmaking live streams on
