PILCHUCK MASQUERADE A VENETIAN AFFAIR

41ST ANNUAL AUCTION & GALA Saturday, October 19, 2019 Fremont Studios, Seattle, WA


WELCOME TO PILCHUCK GLASS SCHOOL'S AUCTION GALA AND CELEBRATION OF GLASS

PILCHUCK GL ASS SCHOOL Pilchuck Glass School fosters and educates a worldwide community that explores the creative use of glass in art and design. The school is located fifty miles north of Seattle, Washington, in the forested foothills of the Cascade Range, overlooking Puget Sound. Each summer and fall, Pilchuck offers a broad spectrum of courses in the use of glass as an expressive material along with annual residencies for emerging and established artists. Pilchuck’s programs, residencies, and events emphasize experimentation, investigation, teamwork, and personal growth. Students and instructors from all over the world and across the United States come to Pilchuck. Since its founding in 1971 by Dale Chihuly, Anne Gould Hauberg (1917–2016), and John H. Hauberg (1916–2002), Pilchuck has been a creative retreat where artists teach artists in a supportive environment. Pilchuck is open to applications from novice, aspiring, and professional artists with the desire and commitment to learn in any of three dozen one-week to three-week courses offered from May to September. The school also invites renowned artists who typically work in media other than glass to expand their art through collaboration and individual research by working with accomplished glassmakers. Fall and spring residencies provide emerging and established artists working in glass the time and space to develop new processes or create fresh bodies of work through individual and collaborative projects. Pilchuck’s outreach and special events connect our extended community of artists and supporters. Events take place on campus, in Seattle, and throughout the United States and abroad, showcasing the breadth and depth of contemporary art created with glass.

WELCOME, FROM YOUR HOSTS ROGER MACPHERSON Board President

Dear Friends, On behalf of our Board of Trustees, staff, and volunteers, we welcome you to Pilchuck Masquerade: A Venetian Affair – Pilchuck’s 41st Annual Auction & Gala. This event marks a special time for us every year; a time when we come together as a community of glass supporters to celebrate our talented artists, renowned instructors, passionate collectors, and gracious supporters – it truly is a night filled with love and celebration.

STEPHANIE MAURER Auction Co-Chair

This year, the theme of our evening highlights the important international impact Pilchuck has established throughout the years. While Venetian Masquerade is a festive motif, it also draws attention to the invaluable relationship we have with the Italian artistic community. This year alone we have donations from over a dozen Italian artists (notated in both this catalog and on the pedestal labels). The open exchange of varying international techniques, practices, and traditions, remains at the core of Pilchuck’s mission, one with a rich history that goes back almost 50 years!

BARBARA WORTLEY Auction Co-Chair

CHRISTOPHER R. TAYLOR Executive Director

ROGER MACPHERSON

All of us at Pilchuck offer our sincere gratitude for the dedication and hard work shown by hundreds of artists, trustees, volunteers, staff, and Auction Committee members who have made this auction possible. We are also grateful to you for joining us this evening and supporting the mission of Pilchuck Glass School – for many of you, in multiple ways. Tonight, by making a purchase and raising your paddle, you ensure that Pilchuck strengthens its role as the most comprehensive school focused on the education of artists working in glass. Thank you for celebrating our rich heritage and a vibrant future of artistic innovation and expression in glass.

Enjoy the evening,

MIKE Y COZZ A

This year, Pilchuck Glass School worked with artist Mikey Cozza to produce beautiful Venetian-style blown goblets for our benefactor gifts. Michael Cozza focuses primarily on sculptural vessel work, using a combination of color and pattern, to compliment the forms he creates. Inspired by traditional Venetian techniques of cane and murine, he uses these elements to explore the possibilities of geometric patterns and engage the optical qualities and transparency of glass in his work. Cozza is from the Pacific Northwest and has studied at Pilchuck Glass School, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and Pratt Fine Arts Center. He is a gaffer at The Glasshouse Studio, artist assistant to Dante Marioni, and has a studio in Seattle where he continues to create new work. MICHAELCOZZAGLASS.COM

DUO ASCEND

HOW THE AUCTION WORKS

BID CARDS AND BID NUMBERS

LIVE AUCTION

Check in at registration to receive your bid card and bid number. All sales are recorded and tracked using the assigned bid number printed on your bid card. If you registered with a guest, you and your guest will share the same bid number unless otherwise requested.

To bid in the live auction, hold your bid card up high with the number facing toward the auctioneer. Either the auctioneer or a bid spotter can accept your bid. The auctioneer reserves the right to reject any bid that is merely a fractional advance over the previous bid. The highest bid acknowledged by the auctioneer is deemed a legal contract with that bidder to purchase the item.

SILENT AUCTION All silent auction bidding will be done via paper bid sheets. Silent sections close at staggered times throughout the auction event (see page 2 in the catalog and the evening program for silent auction closing times). Bids may not be placed after the Auctioneer has announced that the section has closed. In the event of a dispute over a silent auction bid, oral bids may be taken at the discretion of the auctioneer—but only from those who have already placed bids. The auctioneer will determine the winning bid and the decision will be final. FUND-THE-FUTURE Fund-the-Future is an opportunity to support Pilchuck with a monetary gift. This portion of the evening will take place during the Live Auction (after item number 31). The auctioneer will invite you to hold up your card to pledge your commitment. Hold your card until your bid number is read aloud. You may hold up your auction bid card multiple times to pledge more than one amount. Pay for your pledge along with your other auction purchases at the end of the evening.

Wanderer’s Dream 9 x 24 x 8 in. Signed, 2011 at Pilchuck (PIL 01-11) Sandcast glass

“Glass offers opportunities like no other material. It has an inner power of suggestion; it has light, heat, and cold. For me, the blowing room is the centre of everything. It’s like ladling matter out of a volcano and watching the glowing lava turn to ice. Knowing the exact moment at which to capture a shift of light or expression and wrench the secret from the glass is what it’s all about.” Bertil Vallien has worked at Kosta Glassworks since 1963 and is internationally renowned as both a designer and glass artist. His work is represented in the most prestigious museums in the world. D O N AT E D B Y B E R T I L VA L L I E N & H AW K G A L L E R I E S B E R T I LVA L L I E N . S E H AW K G A L L E R I E S .

In 1987 he founded his own studio, mixing lamp-work and furnace techniques in new ways. Salvadore has since worked at prestigious glasshouses and collaborated with designers and artists across the globe. ”Unlike various other art forms, with glasswork it is essential for the participant to use his sense of touch. I encourage my audience to have a real encounter with each piece: I want them to touch it, to caress it, and to understand the shapes and movements. Simply, I want the enthusiast to experience what I feel for my art passion and love.” D AV I D E S A LVA D O R E . C O M H A B ATAT G A L L E R Y

I LOVE PILCHUCK. THIS PLACE HAS CHANGED WHO I AM FOR THE BETTER AND CONTINUES TO CHALLENGE ME IN WAYS I NEVER EXPECTED. I HAVE FORGED LIFELONG RELATIONSHIPS WITH PEOPLE I’VE MET HERE AND I OWE IT ALL TO THIS BEAUTIFUL, MAGICAL PLACE. SOPHIA M. Summer Sta f f, 2019


GLOSSARY OF GL ASS TERMS

BITS  Pieces of molten glass snipped off a blowpipe or punty and applied hot to a glass form. CANE  Thin rods of glass, usually with a twisted pattern in multiple colors used to add pattern to blown glass. DICHROIC  Manufactured glass that is one color when seen by reflected light and another color when light shines through it. The effect can be achieved by applying a dichroic coating to glass that otherwise would not have this property. ELECTROPLATE  The process of adhering metal to glass by dipping the glass into an electrically charged solution. ETCH  To create a design by cutting away the surface of finished glass with a tool or by treating it with acid. FLAMEWORKING OR LAMPWORKING  The process of using a gas-fueled torch or lamp to heat glass rods for sculpting, blowing, and beadmaking. FUSE  To melt together two or more pieces of glass in a kiln. GRAAL  A glassblowing technique wherein a thick “blank” or core form is blown, usually with two or more layers of color. The blank is then engraved, bringing out the underlying color, much as is done with a cameo. The engraved blank is subsequently reheated and blown to its full shape. HOT CAST  To ladle hot glass from a furnace into a mold made of sand, steel, or plaster. INCALMO  A glassblowing process that joins two or more bubbles of hot glass together, resulting in defined bands of color in a vessel or object. INSCISO  A technique for patterning the surface of glass by creating deep incisions, usually with hand-engraving tools. KILN  A high-temperature electric oven used for casting, fusing, and slumping glass. KILNCAST  The use of a mold, usually plaster, filled with crushed glass, which is melted in a kiln to produce a solid glass form. LAMINATE  To use heat or glue to join pieces of glass.

MURRINE  Patterned glass cane cut into sections in order to form small disks that are used in decorating glass or constructing glass forms. OVERLAY  A thin layer of clear or colored glass on the outside of a piece. OFF-HAND  Formed freehand on the end of a punty or blowpipe. No mold is used. PÂTE DE VERRE  From French, meaning “glass paste.” The paste is made from crushed glass and enamel paint. It is applied to the surface of a mold and fired in a kiln at high temperature. ROLL-UP  In this process, multiple pieces of flat glass are fused into a tile. The tile is reheated, rolled up onto a gather, and then blown into a three-dimensional object. SANDBLAST  To blow or blast sand onto a piece, etching away layers of glass. Masking is used to create patterns. SANDCAST  To ladle hot glass into a formed mold made of specialized sand. SCAVO  Corrosive chemical material applied to the surface of hot glass that gives the final piece a matte finish. SCRUFFITTO  The technique of adding color to the surface of glass and then scratching it away, causing a reverse image to appear. SHARD  A small fragment of glass. Colored shards may be melted into a piece for decoration. SLUMP  To heat a sheet of glass in a kiln until it is soft enough to assume the shape of a mold without becoming molten. SMALTI  A soft, intensely colored Venetian glass that is chipped into squares for use in creating traditional mosaics. THREADS  Thin strands of glass, usually colored, that may be added to the glass in a variety of ways for different effects. VITREOGRAPHY  The process of creating a print from a glass plate.

LAMPWORKING  See flameworking.

WRAP  A strand of glass, typically but not always of a contrasting color, applied hot to a vessel.

LOST WAX  A method of casting whereby a wax or waxcoated model is embedded in clay and then baked so that the wax melts and is “lost,” leaving a mold into which hot glass is poured. The mold must be broken in order to retrieve the cast object.

ZANFIRICO  A multi-colored cane made by gathering a bundle of rods of different colors, and heating it until it is soft. The bundle is attached to two pontils and elongated by drawing. At the same time, the bundle is twisted to produce a spiral pattern. Zanfirico is a synonym for vetro a retorti.

MOLDBLOWN  Glass formed into a shape by being blown into a mold, typically made of wood, metal, or plaster.
