Awaken the Beast: Sculpting Animals in Hot Glass with Grant Garmezy at SGS
Participating artists in Grant Garmezy's Awaken the Beast: Sculpting Animals in Hot Glass workshop watch intently as Grant carefully puts the final touches on a Regal Horned Lizard head. The intensive four-day class has challenged participants to take their work to the next level under Grant's ever-watchful eye. Projects ranged from dogs, to giraffes, to fish, to a half-man, half octopus struggling with inner demons.
