HARVEST PETITE GOURD
Artist: The Furnace Glassworks (Lakewood, CO)
Corey Silverman formally trained as a glass artist, earning his BFA with a concentration in glass from Alfred University in New York. Corey worked with several glass studios around the country before settling in Denver, CO in 1999. After much experimentation with glass in all its guises--including slumped forms, casting, cold work, and solid sculpting--he found himself always coming back to the blown form. “I love the immediacy found in making a blown vessel. There’s no questioning what it’s going to look like. You know the end result as you’re putting it away in the annealer. It feels great to have that kind of instant gratification in an art form.”
