Ron Desmett at the Tacoma Museum of Glass

The Visiting Artist Summer Series at the Tacoma Museum of Glass, a partnership with Pilchuck Glass School, hosts internationally-known and emerging artists each week from mid-June through Labor Day weekend. Ron Desmett will be an artist in residence for five days, making new work September 1-5, 2010. On the final day of his residency, Ron will present a Conversation with the Artist lecture on September 5 at 2pm.

Ron Desmett has been working with glass for over three decades. Although he once focused on functional glass vessels such as goblets and bowls, for the last few years his work has been inspired by nature’s landscape. Desmett says his use of hollowed out walnut trees as glass molds allows him to “infuse nature that has lost its life with life anew.”

During his residency, Desmett will continue his exploration of utilizing a process that includes wooden molds.
