Chris Nordin, Master Glass Artist, Free Presentation! West Michigan Glass Art Center, located in downtown Kalamazoo, Michigan is proud to present this special free lecture by our visiting artist, Chris Nordin, Master Glassblower. Lecture is Friday, April 26. Doors open at 6:45 p.m., presentation begins at 7:00 p.m. Enjoy a time travel perspective as Master Glass Artist, Chris Nordin documents his past work to current day. On view will be 25 years of glassblowing from the early days at College of Creative Studies to years of workshops at Haystack, Pilchuck, and Penland. Next came teaching at Corning Museum of Glass and the founding of his own studio with years of production and then the deliberate choice to focus on corporate sculpture and goblets for private clients. Current day will find Chris making private sculptures, perfecting his goblet style on occasion while also hosting unique events and shows in his studio under the Glass Academy company.
