WSKG Arts is proud to partner with the Corning Museum of Glass in a series of features highlighting their past resident artists. This piece profiles artisan Jeff Mack.
Jeff Mack’s career as a glassmaker has offered him a variety of opportunities, from factory production to working and studying with world-renowned glass artists. He has been the manager of the Glass Pavilion at the Toledo Museum of Art, as well as a glassblower and instructor at Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village. Mack’s work references traditional techniques and is held in both public and private collections worldwide.
In his September 2012 Instructor Collaborative Residency at The Studio, Mack worked with Laura Donefer to imitate classic vessel shapes in the Museum’s collection, adding crazy “Doneferian” twists, loading them with texture and pattern.
