Bring The Heat: Tom Ryder Live Glassmaking Demonstration

Watch as glassmaker Tom Ryder creates a large, flattened vase with an alternative cane pattern on the surface. See the final piece starting at 1:21:09. Find the full schedule of upcoming live streams at In our 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.
