Join us for a talk from Stephen Boehme on the Franchini style/technique of murrini making as he explains his process with visual aids on an HD screen. Boehme is joining us here at Sonoran Glass School from Riverton, Utah to teach a Visting Artist Workshop on November 5th and 6th.
This lecture is free for SGS members and a $10 donation for the general public.
Some of Boehme’s work will be on display with select pieces available for purchase in the gallery during this time.
“Most of my artwork is inspired by the textures, history, and diverse landscape found throughout my home state. My interests be it fishing or fossil hunting are all reflected in the texture of my Work. I find it hard to separate one from the other. I teach ceramics, sculpture, and silversmithing at a wonderful High school during school year. And I create art during the summer months and in the evenings. My motto is make something every day no matter how small. Right now I am probably in my studio at the torch making murrini. I have become infected with the glass bug. And yes it is contagious. Sitting behind a torch and melting glass rods is highly addicting.” – Stephen Boehme
