Glassmaker Austin Stern will be an Artist-in-Residence at The Studio from September 30th through November 2nd. Listen to him discuss his work and creative process during this informal lecture on October 22nd at 12:00 p.m. During his residency, Austin intends to develop a new body of work exploring fear and superstition through a series of sculptural glass creatures. Free and open to the public; no reservations required.
Austin Stern's glass sculptures are seemingly innocent creatures that examine visceral emotions such as comfort, anxiety, and even fear. Inspired by the highly saturated colors found in the toys and cartoons of his childhood, he reinterprets traditional Venetian glass techniques to explore interpersonal relationships and mental health.
