Founders Chapter, National American Glass Club, Ltd;.. December 10, Wednesday, Holiday Luncheon and Silent Auction: Our special meal to celebrate the holidays will be catered and we will hold our Silent Auction throughout the day.
PM Program: "Contemporary Glass Bead Making" Presented by Kristina Logan. Kristina has been making glass beads for over 25 years and is recognized internationally for her precisely patterned pieces. In this lecture Kristina will discuss her inspiration and the process she goes through when she creates her unique work. Kristina's work has been collected by The Smithsonian Museum of American Art: Renwick Gallery, Washington DC, The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston MA, The Corning Museum of Glass, Corning NY, and the Musée du Verre de Sars-Poteries, Sars-Poteries, France.
The Corning Museum of Glass writes "...the work of Kristina Logan stands out for its originality, sophistication, and innovation. Logan is an especially talented artist who works with flameworked glass. She makes unique and complex beads in intricate patterns whose sometimes knobby forms recall the remarkable eye beads made in ancient China. Yet Logan's style is purely contemporary." Unless otherwise noted, meetings are held at: Morse Institute Library 14 East Central Street, Natick, MA 01760 • 508.647.6520 www.morseinstitute.org

ART GLASS FORUM. Our Next Meeting of the Season Tuesday, December 10, 7PM
St. Michael’s Church, 225 West 99th Street, New York, NY 10025
Embracing the Wild
Award-winning artist Laura Donefer has been using glass as her primary medium for three decades, often combining it with diverse material toward a goal that she describes as "investigating ideas concerning memory, assault, bereavement, joy and madness." On December 10, her evening talk for the Art Glass Forum | New York, “Embrace the Wild: My 37 Years as a Glass Artist,” will explore the evolution of her works. Donefer will delve into the motivations behind her mixed-media installations and her signature "Amulet Baskets," blown vessels covered in seemingly structurally impossible glass spines. Every few years, Donefer organizes Glass Fashion Shows, and the 2018 edition, she explains, was held in Venice with "33 glass-draped participants boating down the famous Vetrai Canal in Murano in gondolas."
Donefer, who is based in rural Ontario, has taught at institutions worldwide including the Pilchuck Glass School in northwest Washington (she serves on its International Council). Her works are found in prominent public collections, including the Corning Museum of Glass, the Museum of Arts and Design in New York and the Musée des beaux-arts in Montreal. Among her numerous awards are a lifetime achievement award from the Glass Art Association of Canada. When Donefer is not traveling to teach, lecture and exhibit, she reports, she is "hunkered down" in her Ontario studio, where she lives with her husband Dave Hickie and dachshund, Mr. Lance.
In her talk, Donefer says, she will "let the inside out" and offer stories about her fashion shows and artworks and her practice of "living on the planet with a huge zest for life." She has compared working with molten glass to “dancing the magma right out of the earth.” The talk will be preceded by a wine and cheese reception beginning at 6:30 PM.
Annual membership in ART GLASS FORUM dues are $25 for young professionals under 40, $70 for individuals, $90 for households, and $120 for businesses and organizations (up to three employees or guests may attend each event). Non-members are welcome to attend for $15 per meeting.
