    Fred Herbst: Material Collaborations:  A unique woodfired kiln was developed by ceramic artist and educator Fred Herbst in collaboration with the Corning Museum of Glass in 2008. This kiln design was built in order to fire ceramics and blow glass simultaneously using renewable wood fuel. Two kilns have been built, one at Corning Community College in Corning, New York and one at the Domaine de Boisbuchet in France, where they both continue to reveal new possibilities with clay and glass.

    Two makers, one room, one material. One is spinning pots on an electric potter’s wheel. Another is creating digital designs, sending them to a 3D printer and tending to that machine’s manners of extruding. They are both working in clay. What forms do they produce? What do these very different approaches to creating look like in contrast to one another? What does a 3D Printer look like? How does a potter work in our current time? What can be learned from seeing these two makers in proximity to one another?... Read more about Exhibition | Hand Code: Makers in Proximity
