Watch with the Artist: Eric Meek Guest Artist Demonstration

We're excited to introduce a new series on the channel! Since we can't bring you live streams at this time, we'll be hosting weekly Watch with the Artist live events. Join the featured artist in watching their past live stream, along with other Museum glassmakers, who will all be available on chat to answer your questions live. In his demo from 2016, Eric makes a "plaidicello" platter in the Amphitheater Hot Shop. Eric is the Hot Glass Programs Manager at the Museum. He got his start in glassblowing at Bowling Green State University, and after receiving an MFA from Kent State University, he taught glassmaking in Austria for six years. He often uses traditional form and technique to create modern and elegant pieces in the hot shop. Learn more about Eric at Unable to watch the live event? Find hundreds of hours of live streamed demonstrations on the Corning Museum of Glass channel, and check back for new videos soon.
