In our new live demo series, Bring the Heat, join us for a live steam 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.

You may know Cat Burns as the TikTok sensation and maker of the 2020 Unity Pumpkin, but she is also a local and frequent glassblower at the Museum and The Studio.

With her pumpkin of the year in such high demand, Cat will be demonstrating the colorful design and describing the thought process behind this unique creation.

Cat Burns is a defiant artist who uses flamboyant, sarcastic humor to illustrate her internal narrative. She cultivates her work very slowly and uses it as a visual diary, creating audacious visuals as a way of communicating and synthesizing the often perplexing, manic experience of living with depression.
