Visiting Artist Demo
On January 17 at 10am, Sally Resnik Rockriver visits DC GlassWorks to demonstrate her geochemical glassblowing of Otherworldly Specimens.

Educated in Fine Art, Ceramics, and Glass, Rockriver’s unique blowing and casting techniques are self-taught. She is known for generating chemical reactions that make crystalline growths from other planets. She will blow work encrusted with ceramic glazes and cast her fume blown world onto the piece during the breakoff period. Rockriver will also demonstrate geo-cores, clear columns infused with geological growths. She will address her intergrated use of the gloryhole floor and refractory materials. Rockriver approaches glass from a conceptual view with an emphasis in material realism. She will discuss how she discovered her own solutions to technical and creative problems, while encouraging students to find their own path.
