John Shoemaker: Celebrity Scholarship Recipient

John Shoemaker, a Philadelphia resident and 2012 graduate of Tyler School of Art, came to The Studio this summer upon a recommendation from one of his professors to take Benjamin Cobb's class, From the Sketchbook to the Blowpipe. He received a Celebrity Cruises Glassmaking Scholarship to take this course, which focused on staying true to a drawing, troubleshooting the problems that arise while working hot glass and improving on the forms through repetition in order to create the piece the students wanted to achieve.
