Discover how nineteenth-century Venetian glass blowing techniques are used today to create innovative contemporary artwork. Join Deborah Czeresko, one of the featured artists in New Glass Now, on view at SAAM’s Renwick Gallery, for an exciting virtual conversation with Mary Savig, the Lloyd Herman Curator of Craft at SAAM’s Renwick Gallery. A focus of their discussion will be Czeresko’s iconic Meat Chandelier and how the methods of glass blowing she employs have developed over centuries.
