If neon is a word you haven’t heard since the ‘80s, prepare to have your mind blown. In yet another instance of peering behind the art studio doors and finding something amazing, a glass workshop with a focus on neon was recently held here at the MAC.
Instructors Jason Chakravarty and Steve Ciezki taught students how to work with neon and illuminate nontraditional glass forms, including vessels and sculpted forms participants created in the hot shop. Students left with glass forms that are filled with gas and can be illuminated.
Below are some pictures and short videos of the completed works and the process. This particular workshop is not offered again until January, but there are many other interesting art classes and workshops starting this fall. Registration begins soon, so follow this link to find out more: http://bit.ly/1ceWjtp.
