Craftspersons In Residence

Craftspersons in Residence, also known as gaffers, are accomplished artists with expertise in hot glassworking who execute the creative visions of Artists in Residence and Instructors. They have a strong interest in collaboration and a desire to stretch their abilities and ways of thinking. Craftspersons in residence bear the technical challenge and responsibility of creating work for other artists. Pilchuck invites two craftspersons in residence to participate in each session.
