Glassblowing Studio Tour with Cedric Mitchell, June 18
Join GAC for an online studio tour on Friday, June 18, 7pm with Los Angeles-based glassblowing artist Cedric Mitchell. Mitchell will demonstrate his process in his “hot shop,” discuss his work, and answer questions about the techniques and artistry of this fascinating and captivating medium.
Mitchell hails from Oklahoma, and honed his skills while studying business at Tulsa Community College. He learned about glass art as an emerging local hip-hop artist, becoming an apprentice and instructor at The Tulsa Glassblowing School. Inspired by an eccentric mix of Graffiti Art, Pop Culture, Mid-Century Modern and Memphis Design, he creates work that ranges from functional to decorative, combining simplicity in design with bold colors. He is also Events and Resource Manager at Crafting the Future, a nonprofit organization that works to diversity the fields of art, craft and design by connecting BIPOC artists with opportunities that will help them thrive.
