“Revision” by Cole Johnson
Featured Artist Reception & Exhibition
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 12 | 5 - 8 pm
Exhibition Duration October 1 - November 30

“Respect for tradition, excellence in craftsmanship, and attention to detail: through my travels and experiences, these values have become ingrained into my work. Using both traditional and non-traditional techniques, I use glass as a means of expression as well as exploration. Looking at the history of the material and focusing on the importance of line, I am able to reach new levels of technical and artistic achievement.

From a personal perspective, creating is a powerful form of meditation for me. I look at the making process as very precious time. A time in which I have an opportunity to communicate with God, our creator. These moments, as well as my love for the process, are what continually pull me back to the studio.”

Cole Johnson’s first encounter with hot glass was at the Jackson County Green Energy Park in Dillsboro, NC. While attending college at Western Carolina University he spent all of his spare time in Dillsboro, interning and learning as much as he could about glass. After interning for a few years he moved to Adelaide, Australia where he worked as an Associate Designer in Glass for 2 years at The JamFactory. Upon returning Cole moved back to the beautiful mountains of North Carolina to continue his career in glass.

Jewelry: Cuttlebone Casting (image attached)
Cuttlebone is the skeletal remains of the cuttlefish, yuck. The cuttlefish is a member of the mollusk family, somewhat squid like in appearance with ten tentacles, and a soft, mushy body, double yuck. However upon death and with due process of nature the skeleton of the cuttlefish becomes an interesting material in which you can cast metal, yeah! The cuttlebone is cut in half, sanded flat, then a design is carved into it along with an opening to receive the molten metal, and the two halves are bound together. The metal is then melted in a crucible and poured directly into the cuttlebone resulting in a cast metal object. Tour the jewelry lab and learn about the 2 year Jewelry program!
