See guest artist Megan Stelljes during live, narrated demonstrations in the Amphitheater Hot Shop January 14 through 18 from 10 am to 12 pm and 1 to 4 pm. Watch as she brings her bold, pop culture-inspired designs to the Amphitheater Hot Shop with some assistance from the Museum's Hot Glass Team.
Stelljes fell in love with glass when she had an opportunity to apprentice for a glassblower when she was in high school. After attending Emporia State University in Kansas, where she earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in glass forming, she moved to Washington State to apprentice under Karen Willenbrink-Johnsen. Currently, Stelljes lives in Arlington, Wash., and works out of Gray Barn Studios.
In addition to working and teaching across the country, Stelljes has established her own neon shop, where she creates sculptures with neon and hot sculpted glass. She has exhibited her work at the Museum of Neon Art, Sabbia Gallery, Pilchuck Gallery, and Vetri. Stelljes will be one of 100 featured artists in the 2019 exhibition, New Glass Now, at The Corning Museum of Glass.
These demos are included in the cost of admission (kids and teens 17 and under are free).
