In this Bring the Heat live demo, watch master glassmaker Catherine Ayers create figure sculptures out of hot glass.
During the demo, Ayers will talk about her initial sketches and the steps she takes when mapping out the forms the figures will take—in this case two female figures; one of which is pregnant.
While sculpting the pregnant female figure, Ayers will demonstrate how her use of dichroic glass creates visual interest within the clear glass form.

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.
