The Washington Glass School took a sneak peek at next door neighbor and superstar ceramic artist Novie Trump's work as she prepares for a solo show at McLean Project for the Arts (MPA). Her show features some stunning complex installations of ceramic elements and reliquaries. He new sculptures draw on Novie's training in classical archeology and interest in ancient myths and tales - Novie's ceramics have an undertone and the patina of classical antiquity. Themes of finding direction, of searching for home and community are integrated into each of the works in her show.

The Washington Glass School is a unique educational program in the Nation's Capital area, operating as the sculptural glass education, artistic and community center and resource for the mid-Atlantic region, serving students, artists and the general public. It encourages research and exploration of new techniques in all aspects of glass (blown, cast, fused, cold worked) as well as other media such as steel, ceramics, lighting and concrete. Our goal is to introduce artists in other media to the depth, processes and joys of glass to enhance their work.
