Michael Schunke: Time Well Spent | A Show of Goblets

On View: September 1 – October 2, 2016

Opening Reception: September 1st, 5pm – 8pm

During the month of September, Vetri will present Time Well Spent, a solo show featuring stunning handblown glass goblets by Michael Schunke. Opening on Thursday, September 1st, this marks the first show at Vetri in over a decade devoted solely to the art of goblet making.

Michael Schunke will be filling the gallery with dozens of stunning goblets; some comprised of neodymium glass and others illuminated with gold leaf. Michael has devoted years perfecting the art of goblet making, developing his own artistic style and voice through experimentation with form and pattern. While rooted in historic Venetian style and technique, his newest goblets are fresh in design.

Schunke is a contemporary American artist and designer based in Chester County, Pennsylvania. He has dedicated his life to the practice of glassmaking. A former Associate Professor at the Toyama City Institute of Glass Art in Japan, he continues to teach glassmaking, most recently at Pilchuck Glass School and Corning Museum of Glass. He has completed residencies at the Museum of Glass-Tacoma and the Toledo Museum of Glass, and his work is held in the collections of museums internationally. Schunke co-operates Vetro Vero with partner Josie Gluck.

Join us from 5pm-8pm on Thursday, September 1st to celebrate the debut of this special exhibition, experience the new gallery, and enjoy drinks, appetizers, and mingling with the artist.

Time Well Spent will run from September 1st through October 2nd. Please contact us at vetri@vetriglass.com for more details.
