Hot Gatherings, Cool Conversations: Jacob Stout and Mariel Bass
Sponsored by The DMG School Project
Free with MFA admission
Featuring glass artists: Jacob Stout and Mariel Bass
Master glassblower Jacob Stout is the Duncan McClellan Hot Glass Workshop Director. He uses Venetian techniques, developed 500 years ago, to create his objects. Because he does not use molds, each work is unique. He holds his BFA in glass art from Kent State University in Ohio, where he studied with Henry Halem, a Harvey Littleton student and protégé.
Mariel Bass, the Duncan McClellan Studio Manager, fell in love with glass at the Massachusetts College of Art, where she earned her BFA. She has studied with noted glass artists Dan Dailey, Susan Reid Holland, and Kenny Pieper. Both Mr. Stout and Ms. Bass offer classes and workshops and show their work at the Duncan McClellan Studio and Gallery.
