With a focus on light, most of Tom Ryder’s sculptural works are visualizations of energy, from energy in-between people to energy on a much larger scale.

Watch as master glassmaker Tom Ryder creates a large, flattened vase with an alternative cane pattern on the surface.

In our 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.
