July 2023 - Glassblowing Workshop at UrbanGlass, NYC

UrbanGlass

647 Fulton Street, Brooklyn, NY

July 21st, 6-9pm

July 22nd & 23rd, 10am-6pm

-

I will be teaching a glassblowing workshop at the storied New York based glass institution, UrbanGlass. In this workshop students will focus on refining technical skills as a means to explore how simplification can broaden their creative outcomes. We will work through basic forms in clear glass while emphasizing efficient workflow and heat management. We will take a closer look at the blowing processes’ constituent parts (gathering, marvering, centering, body mechanics, etc) and strive to deepen our understanding of the working characteristics of the material. Finally, we will use glass color bar to cover basic color application techniques and discuss the implications on the blowing process and our visual goals.

April 2023 - Contributing Artist at MoMA Exhibition
Guillermo del Toro: Crafting Pinocchio

MoMA

I had the privilege of visiting The Museum of Modern Art to view the exhibition Guillermo del Toro: Crafting Pinocchio. The show coincided with the premier of the director’s first stop-motion animated feature, Pinocchio, and included production art, props, puppets, and recreations of working film sets where this movie came to life. The film was realized through the collaborative efforts of designers, craftspeople, and animation artists in Guadalajara, Mexico, Altrincham, England, and Portland, Oregon. 

 

In 2020 I was contacted by the stop-motion art team to prototype and fabricate glass for the film as well as provide material consultation on glass, its working characteristics and physical properties. Some of the objects I created were used in the making of the film and one was included in this exhibition for which I was credited.

July 2020 - Cover Artist for the Buckman Journal 

In July 2020, I worked with friends Brittany V. Wilder and Arielle Zamora to design and realize the cover artwork for Issue #004 of the Portland based arts publication, the Buckman Journal. Created in a time of social isolation and unknowingness of what the future would hold, we wanted to inspire the readers of our community to find strength and seek connection. Photography and styling by Brittany, Floral design by Arielle, and my Glasswork contributions.

July 2019 - Solo Exhibition
Finding The Line 
1015 SE Stark St. Gallery - Portland, OR

In my inaugural solo exhibition ‘Finding the Line,’ I aim to present a body of glasswork which tells the story of my journey thus far with the material and explore the connection to place and time. I moved from Washington, DC to Portland, OR in the Fall of 2013 to find opportunities to learn and work with glass and that decision has changed my life. This body of work captures what it means to find identity as an outsider and the power of artistic expression and object making as a link to a changing landscape.
