From the Flame is a juried exhibition that showcases the tremendous range and vitality of flamework as an art form. The artists included in this exhibition come from across the country, as near as southeast Michigan and as far as southern California. Some have been in the field for years—working, writing, and teaching— while others are breaking through with innovative concepts and laying the foundation for the next generation. Flamework (also known as lampworking and torchworking) is a traditional technique where a torch or lamp is used directly to melt glass. Once in a molten state, the glass is formed by blowing and shaping with tools and hand movements.

This event is FREE and open to the public.
