Dear Friends,
Welcome to the thirteenth annual Museum of Glass Red Hot! On behalf of the Board of
Trustees, staff and volunteers, we thank you for attending.
Whether you are an artist, donor, member, sponsor or first time Red Hot attendee, your
presence and support are vital and greatly appreciated.
Every donation you make tonight supports our core education, exhibition and Hot Shop
programming. As a result of last year’s generous gifts we were able to welcome over 30
Visiting Artists, present amazing new exhibitions such as Chihuly Drawings, Kids Design
Glass Too, Patra Passage, and Lightness of Being — New Sculpture — Howard Ben Tré;
and continue with our innovative programs such as Hot Shop Heroes: Healing with Fire.
Tonight’s event features honey bee themes inspired by the Glass Distillery’s Nectar

Dale Chihuly
Onyx Soft Cylinder with Drawing Shards
and Russet Lip Wrap
8 x 8 x 8”
Chihuly’s Soft Cylinders, a series that began 30 years
ago, demonstrates a pick-up technique of drawing on
glass which uses a series of colored shards, carefully
placed on a hotplate and then gathered onto the
molten piece before the final gather of glass from the
furnace. These drawings reflect the early influence that
American Indian trade blankets had on his works, just
as the organic shape of each piece is reminiscent of
Northwest Coast Indian baskets.
Black melts into transparency, a transition that floats
the opaque color and provides a nuanced background
for the vibrant drawings. The intense orange shards
and subtle patterning weave an elegant reference to
the deep history of this series, while vibrant red caps
this piece with a unifying lip wrap.
Chihuly revisited these artworks in spring 2014,
pushing the technique and color in unprecedented
ways. This iconic piece captures this rich history with
an elegant, modern touch.

Boreal Ice (Beluga Whale)
by Armelle Bouchet O’Neill and Raven Skyriver
Mandarin Orange by Erich Woll
Armelle Bouchet O’Neill and Raven Skyriver began to
discuss the idea of a collaboration after considering how
Bouchet O’Neill’s carved patterns, often reminiscent
of wind or waves on water, might complement the
surface of Skyriver’s amazingly realistic sea creatures.
Combining Skyriver’s whale form with Bouchet O’Neill’s
fluid patterning seemed like a natural fit.
Armelle Bouchet O’Neill is a French-born, Seattle-based
glass artist. She studied at The Danish School of Design
on the island of Bornholm before moving to the United
States in 2009.
Raven Skyriver started blowing glass in high school at
the age of 16. Raven’s mentor, Lark Dalton, taught him
how to build glass blowing equipment and trained him
in Venetian technique. His focus in the area of sculpture
and depiction of marine life is inspired by his island
upbringing and informed by the creatures that inhabit
this fragile ecosystem.

The segmentation series is inspired by my fascination with
science of cell, its division and the journey of growth that
starts from a single cell and goes through a million divisions
to become a life. I work with glass that has transparency and
translucency, two qualities that serve as perfect metaphors
for what is known and unknown about life science. The
segmented, geometrical forms of my work represent cells,
embryos, biological and molecular structures—each
symbolizing the building blocks of life as well as the starting
point of life. I transform solid glass using cutting, lamination,
carving and surface refining processes to make art that is both
beautiful and deeply invested with meaning. — Jiyong Lee

Using a lively, gestural visual language, Davide Salvadore reinterprets and
reinvigorates traditional African symbols. He employs mostly earth tones
in his work, punctuated by splashes of brilliant color bringing to mind the
crisp blue sky of the desert or the bright hues of African textiles. Areas of
intense carving create a rhythmic quality, while the overall organic form
brings a sense of vitality to the work. Salvadore’s tireless quest for perfection
and constant drive to push the boundaries of his material have led him to
new ways of thinking about glass and its capabilities. With each new body
of work, Salvadore dazzles his audience, forcing us to reconsider our ideas
about what is possible using glass as a sculptural medium.

Private Party for Eight at John Kiley’s Studio
Buzz on in
Scene of Japan # 170 by Hiroshi Yamano
Invite seven friends to join you, John Kiley and his
team in his private Seattle studio for an evening of
glassblowing. You will experience a behind-the-scenes
discussion on the history, inspiration and techniques
that go into the beautiful pieces Kiley creates. In
addition, your evening will include delicious appetizers
paired with fine wine.
Kiley is known for his mastery of glass-sculpting
techniques. His elegant pieces combine transparency,
bold colors, striking geometries and impeccable
finishes. Kiley says of his work, “I hope that my work,
seemingly stable or precarious, succeeds on evoking
feelings that would not be present without this
choice in material.” Kiley’s work can be found in major
collections and museums throughout the world.

The mission of Museum of Glass (MOG) is to provide
a dynamic learning environment to appreciate the
medium of glass through creative experiences,
collections and exhibitions.
Since the opening of the Museum, we have hosted
over 400 Visiting Artists, many of whom have had
pivotal and career-changing experiences during their
residencies. The freedom to innovate, experiment
and pursue new ideas without financial constraints,
alongside a team of talented artists in our Hot Shop,
has deeply impacted individual artists, galleries,
museums and collectors throughout the world.

Museum of Glass is a vital center for the nurturing and
development of emerging artists. We take our lead
in this endeavor from Maestro Lino Tagliapietra and
his dedication to sharing his talents and wisdom with
countless artists over the years. Through our newly
established Lino Tagliapietra Fund, the Museum is
able to provide week-long residencies for 10 emerging
artists each year.

Navy Blue/Red and Green Ribcage Vessel
by John Miller
Inochi by Mary Van Cline
In the Ribcage Series my goal was to combine sensual, contrasting
colors, using advanced glassworking techniques with organic,
gestural forms to create elegant, large-scale vessels. These pieces
allude to the human figure with their colorful “ribcages,” graceful
necks, and expressive “body” language. Each vessel has its own
individual personality, with color combinations and shapes that
reflect the environments in which they originated. I often travel
to different parts of the country to lecture and demonstrate
glassblowing techniques. When making these pieces away from
home, I absorb the mood of the city and the energy of the crew that
I work with. The personalities of the individuals and the dynamics
of the group influence and affect the process, and ultimately, the
finished piece. — John Miller

This piece is from my signature Spirale series. The Spirale
series is inspired by combining two techniques from two
different mediums: the “Coil” method from ceramics and
the Italian “Zanfirico” technique from glass. Traditionally,
Zanfirico is applied vertically to create a linear design,
however, the fluid circular design of this piece coils from
top to bottom in one continuous spiral. The combination
of these techniques create a unique horizontal pattern
which is what I aim for when creating this series.

Spirit of the Desert
by Peggy Pettigrew
Growing up in the urban environs of the south side of
Chicago fueled an artistic desire to express reverence
for the resplendent spiritual power inherent in nature
and the disdain I feel for man’s endless quest to
conquer it. Through the translation of my inner vision
into tangible form, I seek to express the tie that binds
the soul experience to the Earth. — Patricia Davidson

Hopi Storyteller series. The

Polingyouma, the son of
the Chief of the Hopi Tribe
(Bluebird Tribe) and oral
historian for the tribe. This
piece has the blessing of the
Hopi. The Hopi normally do
not allow their images to be used because they feel that
it takes part of their spirit away. That is what makes this
piece special. That they have allowed me to use their
image is important. There are three “spirits” created into
the glass, that are to protect their spirit.

Sodo neighborhood, the Glass Distillery offers elegance
and charm with a distinctively modern twist. Featuring
a custom-built 26 foot long, 6 foot wide King’s Table,
glittering confetti glass concrete floor, state-of-the-art
sound system, and an extensive collection of colorful
hand-blown glass from local glass artisans, Glass Distillery
provides the perfect setting for your evening.
You will be served skillfully crafted cocktails and classic
comfort food from Tavern Law. This magical evening will
showcase the art of mixing drinks.
The most recent collaboration
of Hanne Enemark and Louis
Thompson, Penumbra, has
provided an opportunity for the
duo to portray their ideas about
the tension between chaos and
order, fragility and strength,
and internal structure and
external form, through a series
of large-scale, elegant pieces
that combine their strengths
and common interests as artists
and makers.

In celebration of the exhibition Chihuly’s Venetians: The
George R. Stroemple Collection, the Museum of Glass
Hot Shop Team has produced a series of glass pieces
inspired by classical Venetian style. We have utilized
decorative elements of 19th-century Murano glass, such
as zanfirico canes, gold leaf and elaborate handles to
create contemporary pieces. As craftsmen, we have great
respect for the skill and imagination of the glassmakers
of that time. We built on that tradition by combining
classical techniques with a modern design sensibility.

A Sunken Canoe
by Steve Jensen
For me, the image of the boat is meant to symbolize a
voyage or journey. Perhaps it’s the voyage to the other
side or the journey into the unknown. I began the
Voyager series to help me deal with my own grief and
loss, and with hope to provide relief for others dealing
with their own sorrow. I made this work as personal as
possible because death is such a sensitive subject for
many people. — Steve Jensen

Tropical Bowl
by Ed Branson
This cobalt blue wavy bowl, with accents of green
and black on the outer side, was conceived in a
renovated apple barn where Branson currently
creates exceptional vessels that have the sense of
movement associated with glass in its molten state.

Mean Machine 2.0
by Nick Davis
Mean Machine 2.0
is the second of a
set of sculptures in
hot sculpted glass
and fabricated
steel reflecting on
the generation of
ideas and abstract
thoughts. The glass
represents our
natural human form,
transparent and obvious in its animal relation to
the natural world. The steel “golden spiral” is the
manifestation of our academic and technological
innovations that help us understand, and sometimes
put us at odds with, the universe around us.
Thank you
