In this Bring the Heat live demo, watch master glassmakers Helen Tegler and Caitlin Hyde explore the duality of good and evil; two artists, two types of glass, two techniques joined for one unstoppable celebration of glass making in 2021!

Watch as Caitlin flameworks imps and angels that dance atop stoppers, while Helen playfully pairs the stoppers with furnace worked soda lime glass bottles.

In our new live demo series, Bring the Heat, join us for a live stream of glass artists demonstrating their expertise and skillful execution while “in the zone.”

During each demo, an artist will present a personal design they’ve worked to perfect, and they will be live on the mic to narrate as they work—a rarity for live artist demonstrations and a first at the Museum.
