Mathieu Grodet

WSKG is pleased to be partnering with the Corning Museum of Glass in a series of segments featuring their past resident artists. Mathieu Grodet is a French-born artist living and working in Canada. He creates thin and elegant glass objects in classic Venetian style, engraved with imagery that addresses modern-day ideas and issues. In his March 2012 Residency at The Studio, Grodet used the Museum’s Rakow Library to research forms and styles for vessels, as well as sketches for his final drawings on the vessels. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3gKwxwN5DU
