Cedric Mitchell | Guest Artist

Watch master glassmaker Cedric Mitchell at work. Join Cedric Mitchell in the Amphitheater Hot Shop where he will split and combine forms, working toward complex shapes, which use color fades and pattern work. He will then combine these larger forms to create a Memphis Design-style totem. Cedric Major Mitchell is a Los Angeles-based glass artist from Oklahoma who honed his skills while attending Tulsa Community College studying business. Learning about the glass art-form as an emerging local hip-hop artist while recording in the music studio, he immediately enrolled as an elective. Mitchell is inspired by an eccentric mix of Graffiti Art, Pop Culture, Mid-Century Modern, and Memphis Design. He creates work that ranges from functional to decorative art, combining simplicity in design with bold colors to craft hand-blown vessels with a purpose. Mitchell founded his company, Cedric Mitchell Designs, in 2018 to teach private classes and create glasswork for designers. Mitchell also works with high-end stores such as Mohawk General Store and Heath Ceramics to create custom collections.
