Glass Break: Metal and Glass
Afternoon speaker series

Thursday, March 8, 2018 12:00 PM - 12:45 PM

Glass Break is the new mid-day series of conversations with artists and thinkers, giving their insights into the works of art on view at Museum of Glass. Each conversation will look at the specific processes used to create the works of Albert Paley, Michael Taylor and Dale Chihuly, from how one creates distinct shapes in cold glass to the influence of the medium of glass in the art world.  

These 30-minute talks are held every Thursday starting at noon in the MOG theater. Bring your own food, or grab a bite from Choripan, the museum café.

Admission is $5. Soft drinks, water, and cookies provided.


This week's lecture: Metal and Glass

Looking at the works of Albert Paley, we’ll talk about how metal and glass are worked into shapes, and how the two materials complement each other. Featuring Scott Szloch, instructor of Forging and Metalsmithing, Pratt Fine Arts Center.

Working with steel or wrought iron, blacksmiths use tools to bend, hammer and cut metal to create powerful and amazing shapes and forms. In the work of Albert Paley, collaborating with other artists allows an artistic conversation to develop, with two approaches meeting in one vision, one statement.

This discussion will reference the metal and glass collaborative works currently on display, Complementary Contrasts: The Glass and Steel Sculptures of Albert Paley. Addressing the interplay possible in these two materials, we will look at how an artist creates balance, elements of fluidity and the language of form.
