pilchuck! / by Hannah Gason

I have just returned from an amazing time at the Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, Washington. Below are some of the works I made during the course I took. Instructors Aimee Sones and Anjali Srinivasan and teaching assistants Jean Fernandes and Meadhbh McIlgorm were generous in sharing their excellent knowledge and tips. The course covered a variety of techniques and was filled with experimentation and surprises!

I also saw some fantastic art work at the Seattle Art Museum, Traver Gallery and the Museum of Glass in Tacoma. A particular highlight was getting to visit Dale Chihuly's incredible Boathouse, thanks to Jason Christian (gaffing at Pilchuck) who organised the tour.
