2011 Hot Glass Roadshow: Glass Art Society, Seattle – Mark Zirpel

Never afraid to experiment with glass, Mark Zirpel took to the Hot Glass Roadshow stage where he performed a series of pieces including blowing glass horns to play a “humpback whale duet” and exploring the reactive forces of glass, steam and pressure in a piece about pleasure.  His gallery work often blends science and art, so it’s no surprise that Mark tries out new techniques in the Hotshop like a scientist in the lab.
