Eric Meek has worked to become a versatile glass artist, able to execute ideas in glass with fluency in the material. When working, Meek likes to draw upon tradition and fine craftsmanship to realize modern, elegant forms.
Watch as Senior Manager of Hot Glass Programs Eric Meek makes glass that celebrates cool treats such as ice cream and syllabub, a popular dessert with 18th-century Britain's high society.
Curatorial Assistant Linnea Seidling will provide historical insight into these glass objects during the demo, bringing life to how these desserts were enjoyed at the time.
Join us for our summer live stream demo series highlighting objects and themes from our new exhibition, In Sparkling Company: Glass and the Costs of Social Life in Britain During the 1700s.
In context of this exhibition, curators from The Corning Museum of Glass present historical perspectives on the glassmakers’ creations.
