Listen to Talking Out Your Glass podcast
As Contemporary Glass Society (CGS) members know, one of many perks of membership is the regular chance to hear glass artists talking about their work via CGS video presentations. Chair Susan Purser Hope works tirelessly to put together this programme of speakers with the CGS Administrator Pam Reekie.
If you enjoy these presentations, you can always watch them again – or catch up with them later – on YouTube.
You can also indulge yourself in more glass interviews in the form of a podcast called Talking Out Your Glass, presented by former editor of the US Glass Art magazine, Shawn Waggoner.
Shawn has interviewed and written about many of the world’s greatest artists working with glass in the furnace, torch and on the table.
In 2016, she turned her passion for glass art into a podcast featuring interviews with the likes of Lino Tagliapietra, Narcissus Quagliata, Dante Marioni, Robert Mickelsen, Toots Zynsky, Shayna Lieb, Kelly O’Dell, Raven Skyriver, Ginny Ruffner, Lucio Bubacco, Richard Marquis, Judith Schaechter, and many more.
Rated in iTunes’ ‘New and Noteworthy’ in 2018, the Talking Out Your Glass podcast continues to evolve and includes interviews with America’s finest borosilicate artists making both pipes and sculpture on the torch.
Other topics include how to use sustainable glass practices and how artists address the issues of our times, such as climate change, politics, and life in the age of technology.
