This was the second of two courses on Murano glass given by Dr. Hersh that I had the pleasure of taking. It builds upon the first one, although it also works as a stand alone course.
In it, Dr. Hersh introduces some of the greatest glass blowers and designers working in Murano today across a range of styles and objects. Some of the creators work in a more representational style and some are completely abstract, but the craftsmanship and artistry of those creations are simply mind blowing.
My only regret about this course was that it was over too soon! I would have happily kept tuning in for another hour and a half. If you have any interest at all in glass as a medium or are simply curious about its artistic possibilités, this course is highly recommended.
Loved this presentation! The selection of artists and the videos of them working was really interesting.
Wonderful talk- well organized, good flow with highly knowledgeable presenter who conveyed her passion for this subject. Thoroughly worthwhile from start to finish.
i have taken many Jennie Hirsh courses. I've even taken this one 2 times. I love her insight and her ability to grasp the best of the best in our allotted time. i also love the ability to chat with other viewers as we go.
Highly recommend this session highlighting some of the artists working in Venice and their techniques and collections. Presentation put together with thought and delivered well, a nice mix of slides and videos to support the lecture.
