Penland Friends

Pittsburgh was about visiting Penland friends. Theo and Matt have joined an artist collective in the historic south side Brew House off of Carson Street.

They are also teaching at Penland School of Craft for Fall Concentration:

Matthew Eskuche - Plastic Fantastic

This class will give students a solid base of skills and knowledge in flameworking as we explore the indeterminate plasticity of glass. We will address technique, form, and design through discussions, demonstrations, assignments, and critiques. Students will have the chance to experiment with glass of all coefficients and to use jacks and diamond shears in making vessels. We will also survey the history of flamework. The class will include tours of studios, lectures, and visiting artists including Shane Fero, Emilio Santini, and Paul Stankard. All Levels.

Studio artist; teaching: The Studio at Corning (NY), Snow Farm (MA); exhibitions: Sandra Ainsley Gallery (Toronto), SOFA Chicago; collections: Racine Art Museum (WI), Museum of Arts and Design (NYC), Philadelphia Museum of Art.
