The James Renwick Alliance hosted the demo at DC Glassworks.
The dynamic duo that is Kari Russell-Pool and Marc Petrovic worked their magic this past weekend, giving demonstrations of their intensely beautiful glass techniques, and illustrated how the two artists work with and inspire each other.
Performing the demos at DC GlassWorks, and talking at the Smithsonian's Renwick Gallery, the husband and wife artists are the Nick and Nora of glass.
Marc dazzled the audience with his incredibly detailed and stunning blowing abilities, creating a life sized striped bass that seemed to be stopped in midair leap and one of his famous birds.

Kari made a number of her delicate lampworked flowers and showed how she creates the lace-like forms in glass.
A big thank you to the JRA for organizing the talk and show, and to DC GlassWorks for hosting the demos.
