2011 Hot Glass Roadshow: Glass Art Society, Seattle – Jen Elek

For South Seattle artist Jen Elek, “People, the relationships we have with one another, and the places we occupy, inspire my work.  Making art acts as a translator, helping me process messages presented by modern media.  My personal interpretation of American culture is the basis for my artwork.”  In this piece, Butchigiri 2011 CMoG Roadshow, Jen draws on a method learned from gaffer Bryan Rubino to create a colorful grape inspired sculpture.
