Bring the Heat: George Kennard makes an incalmo glass vase live

Watch Master Glassmaker George Kennard create a decorative vase inspired by the flameworked glass of Kurt Wallstab. Using the incalmo technique, Kennard will combine various patterned and colored bubbles to create a piece drawing from the styling of Wallstab’s famous “Montage” works. See the final piece starting at 1:57:57. In our new live demo series, Bring the Heat, join us for a live stream of glass artists demonstrating their expertise and skillful execution while “in the zone.” During each demo, an artist will present a personal design they’ve worked to perfect, and they will be live on the mic to narrate as they work—a rarity for live artist demonstrations and a first at the Museum.
