    You have a rare opportunity to see the work of Steve Klein and tour his studio, virtually, at 4 p.m. (MST) on Friday, February 25.

    Klein’s use of exuberant colors and quintessential geometric forms is inspired by painters and sculptors from the past, the natural world, and life experiences. He is driven by the material and process to reflect his own ideals in kilnformed glass.

    “I like the idea of having control of the piece during the construction and composition, then losing control while the piece is in the kiln, then being able to regain control through further processes to bring together my thoughts, material and process into a resolved piece.” 

    Registration for the tour is here.

    "Summertime, and the living is. . .Pilchuck?" It could be for you.

    This is the 50th anniversary of the remarkable vortex that became the renowned and rollicking Pilchuck Glass School. Almost all the renowned and revered names in glass art have Pilchucked at one time or another.

    Pilchuck plans on resuming its full summer workshop program. You'll need to hurry—applications for workshops and staff positions are due February 1. Scholarships are available, and staff positions are paid (in many ways, including money).

    The list of workshop ops is worth a look, whether you can go this summer or not. Fall courses are listed as well.

    And let's all light a kiln to recognize Pilchuck's 50th.
