Bring the Heat: Eric Goldschmidt Live Streamed Demonstration

Inspired by this year’s exhibition, "In Sparkling Company: Glass and the Costs of Social Life in Britain During the 1700s," Flameworking Supervisor Eric Goldschmidt created a tiered serving display. The piece involves the precision flameworking of hollow forms that fit together into a multi-level set of interconnected dishes for a display of desserts. See the final result starting at 1:59:44.
