The Hunt for American Brilliant Cut Glass

BY FRANZ HELLWIG
@ VOL 17 ON MAY 13, 2015

"Upon seeing the green vase, I was speechless. It was wrapped in newspaper dated from 1970 and had been in the attic the entire time. It was a one of a kind piece, and no one knew it existed. After all the wasted trips and false alarms, here I was with one of the greatest discoveries of cut glass."

Franz Hellwig is an avid collector of American Brilliant Cut Glass, an art form and product popular in the United States from 1876-1916. Franz shares with us a bit of the history and methods used by the American artisan to create these pieces of art. Today Franz is considered one of the foremost experts of American Brilliant Cut Glass and travels across the country in search for his next piece.

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Monday, September 21th, 2015.

Glass is HOT!

BY JERRY CATANIA
@ VOL 2 ON AUG 20, 2015

"What began for me and others who participated in a 1972 Chihuly workshop, 40 years later is an amazing expression of the creative spirit captured in glass." 

In "Glass is HOT" from PechaKucha St. Joseph Vol. 2 Jerry Catania share's his love for making glass art. He dives into his interesting history of being a student of famed experimental glass sculptor Dale Chihuly and how that experience led him to pioneer and cultivate over a decade of healthy and successful creative workshops and programs with a community that cherishes its new found glass culture in St. Joseph/Benton Harbor, Michigan where he and his wife Kathy run the Water Street Glassworks. 

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Tuesday, September 29th, 2015.
