Hot Gatherings, Cool Conversations: Glass Artist Series
Sponsored by The DMG School Project
Free with MFA admission.
This month: David Royce @ 3pm
David Royce began glassblowing at 15 as an apprentice of Tom Rine and Thomas Maras at Island Glass Studios in Minneapolis. In his sophomore year at the University of River Falls in Wisconsin, he traveled to Taiwan for a glassmaking “study abroad” program. The experience broadened his horizons and he returned to complete his BA in child psychology, with a minor in Chinese language and literature, at the University of Minnesota.
He never abandoned his craft, however, and has a unique approach to cold-work, a technique that adds a quality of mechanical perfection to a vessel. He uses cold-work cuts in an improvisational way, expressing movement and revealing layers of color.
