Exhibit to bring glass artists to Indy

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana Glass Arts Alliance (IGAA) and GRT Glass Design Studio will host the annual Hot Glass Infusion Weekend 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. March 23 and noon to 5 p.m. March 24. The free event will take place at GRT Glass Design Studio, 6400 Brookville Road, Indianapolis. For directions to GRT Hot Glass Studio, call 353-6369 or visit the website www.grtglassdesign.com.

Hot Glass Infusion Weekend is just that - hot, as in cool; focused on all forms of glassmaking; and an infusion of glassmakers, glass collectors, and the "glass curious."

A family-friendly event, Hot Glass Infusion Weekend brings together Indiana's top glass artists - hot glass workers, whose work is created on blow pipes and in furnaces; flameworkers, whose craft focuses on glass beads, marbles, and smaller ornate objects made with torches; and slump glassmakers and fused glassmakers, who create their work from larger pieces of partially melted glass.

IGAA's Hot Glass Infusion Weekend includes all-day concurrent demonstrations of flameworking and glassblowing. There is an exhibition of fine art pieces by the demonstrating artists and a glass shop featuring affordable glass items. Artists bring pieces of their work for sale, and pieces made during the event are auctioned at regular intervals. Visitors will be able to bid, during live auctions, on artwork created throughout the day by demonstrating artists.

The event, sponsored by Ball State University's Glick Center for Glass and Ripley Auctions and Antique Helper in Indianapolis, is a continual flow of demonstrations in all glass media, including one 11-year-old flameworker with exceptional skills. An educational section will explain the history and science of glass. Glassblowing and flameworking tools and examples of different glass techniques will be available for visitors to touch. IGAA members will be on hand to answer questions and to explain the different glass art forms. Guests are encouraged to roam the areas of GRT Glass Design, to talk with the variety of glass artists, watch them make their work, and to bid on it at auction if they like.
