He has taught workshops at Pilchuck Glass School, Penland School of Crafts, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts and The Glass Furnace, among other glass programs. Carlson is known for creating narrative sculptures using paint and glass to create images and forms that are archetypal and personal, iconographic and idiosyncratic. “The glass gives these sculptures form, but the paint gives them meaning.”
AUGUST 1 - 5
Marc Petrovic, Essex, CT
Marc Petrovic works out of his private studio that he shares with his wife, Kari Russell-Pool. He is known for his detailed glass sculptures of birds that express his views on identity derived from a sense of place and self. “I strive to be an artist first and a hot glass sculptor second to make content-driven work that stresses the idea at its core rather than the seductive material it is made from.”
AUGUST 15 - 19
Cappy Thompson, Seattle, WA
Seattle artist Cappy Thompson is internationally known for her mythological and poetic narratives painted with transparent glass enamels on blown glass panels and vessels. Her technique is called grisaille and has been used since the Middle Ages. Thompson created Gathering the Light, the 12 x 15-foot triptych mural installed in the Museum’s Grand Hall that depicts a story of glassmaking.

Steve Klein, Orange, CA
Steve Klein has taught, studied, and shown his art in exhibitions and workshops throughout the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and Taiwan. He maintains a studio in southern California where he produces his distinctive kiln-formed and blown work. "My recent work seeks to explore and appreciate memories, consequences and the fragile state of balance."
LUKE JERRAM, Bristol, UK
November 16 - 20
Fascinated with how the world works, Luke Jerram consults and collaborates with scientists and engineers to study the qualities of space and perception. His ongoing research of perception is fueled by the fact that he is color blind. During his Hot Shop residency, Jerram plans to investigate how scientific information can be read and interpreted when it is rotated and transformed from two-dimensional imagery to three-dimensional glass forms.
MARTIN JANECKY, Fairbanks, AK
October 19 -23
Martin Janecky has been blowing glass since he was 13 years old. In his current work, he explores 1930-era clowns and mimes, inviting viewers to consider the layers of meaning and the person under the makeup. During this residency, Janecky plans to continue the progression of this work, using the Hot Shop Team to create more elaborate full figures with detailed costuming along with the expressive facial features for which he is known.
INGALENA KLENELL, Sunne, Sweden
September 28 - October 2
Ingalena Klenell studied glassblowing at Orrefors. Intrigued by the material but unsatisfied by the strictures of glass tradition, she invented her own kiln-forming technique. Her interests in feminism, consumerism, United States history and the wilderness debate are evident in Glimmering Gone, an exhibition of work from her collaboration with Beth Lipman, currently on display at the Museum.
MILDRED HOWARD, Berkeley, CA
February 9 - 13
Mildred Howard is known for her mixed media assemblage and installation work that combines recycled materials to reference African-American folk culture. Her Blackbird in a Red Sky (a.k.a. Fall of the Blood House) was one of the Museum’s acclaimed inaugural outdoor art installations displayed on the Mezzanine Plaza in 2002. During her residency, she will work with the Hot Shop Team to make a collection of glass punctuation marks that will be used in a new installation that will open at the Museum of Glass in July.
PRESTON SINGLETARY, Seattle, WA
