Good times at Montreal Glass Conference

Prior to the conference Tyler taught a glass blowing workshop at Espace Verre, an institution dedicated to glass art education in Montreal. The workshop was full with participants who traveled from far and wide to attend Tyler’s course that focused on design development and vessel form. At the end of the course, the participants were challenging themselves, pushing their skill level and working collaboratively to create their own designs.

During the conference Tyler did a demonstration of an elaborate piece that was a group effort that included Tyler and I as well as our studio assistants (both past and present). It was a challenging endevour to assemble such a complex piece but the collective talents of the group made it an exhilarating experience.
