Gathering: John Miller and Friends

Location

Museum of Glass Tacoma, WA

Dates: 
Oct 29, 2011 to Jun 10, 2012

Gathering showcases a collection of super-sized Venetian-style goblets created by Miller between 1996 and 2011 in collaboration with some of his colleagues and friends. Miller selected these artists based on their contributions to the advancement of the contemporary glass movement. Each collaborating artist offered his or her artistic and technical expertise to create the stem, or vertical element that connects the cup to the base of the goblet, that references a current or past body of work. In most cases, Miller completed each goblet by producing a cup and foot and assembling the goblets in his studio. Several of the goblets were created in the Museum of Glass Hot Shop during Miller's Visiting Artist residencies in 2010 and 2011.
