ISGB Conference Update

>

Robert Kincheloe has been keeping us posted on the events and demos now taking place at the ISGB Conference in Rochester, NY.

After a road trip that included a swing by the Corning Museum of Glass, Robert arrived and assisted with the set- up at the convention center.


Some of the ongoing demos:

Nomoda “Cedi”Djaba
Cediis from Ghana, West Africa. His family has been making Krobo Powder Glass since the 13th century. Cedi has taught around the world including Penland School of Crafts, Bullseye Glass and The Centre for Global and Development Education in Somerset, England.

Wesley Fleming

Wesley is inspired by the shapes and colors of nature. Here Wesley demos his glass insects showing how he achieves the intricate detail.

Jeanne Menafo and Brett Pierce

Jeanne and Brett have been combining their talents to create blown glass sculpture. A glassblower for 25 years, Brett has taught flameworking and currently is an instructor at The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass. Here Brett sets up a demo of murrini roll-ups at the torch.
