Helen Tegeler Guest Artist Demonstration

Watch Helen Tegeler create a large acorn with a squirrel all made in glass. See the final piece starting at 1:21:02. From growth patterns, developmental structures, and surface textures, Tegeler feels there are infinite design possibilities when interpreting nature in glass. The Guest Artist Series features world-class visiting artists at work in the Amphitheater Hot Shop. These special, extended demonstrations provide a fascinating peek at the techniques, artistry, and improvisation that comprise contemporary glassmaking. Our own Hot Glass Demo Team assists and narrates for each artist, answering audience questions in real time. Learn more at
