Martin Janecky at BAGI, October 28-30, 2010

On October 28-30, Martin Janecky came to BAGI to teach a master class in glass sculpting, and then on October 31st, he did a free demonstration for the public, showing us his amazing process of sculpting figures out of glass. His appearance was sponsored in part by GLANC. Martin is from the Czech Republic, and has been blowing glass since the age of thirteen. He now does most of his work in Alaska, where the weather is very conducive to glass blowing. He is young with enormous potential, and is one of the major up and coming artists in the world of glass today. About 150 people were able to experience his remarkable process of sculpting molten glass into a figure, much like the first set of figures shown on his web site (www.martinjanecky.com).

In fact, if you would like to see the finished product, it will be in the BAGI auction which will be held on March 26th at the Palo Alto JCC.That Halloween Sunday afternoon was one to remember.
