Welcome from the Executive Director & Board President

Fund-the-Future

Raise your paddle to support the next generation of artists working in glass!

Dear Friends, Since its founding in 1971, Pilchuck Glass School has played an integral role in the studio glass movement. Fifty years ago, artist Harvey Littleton and scientist Dominick Labino, through their pioneering workshops, introduced individual artists to creating with glass outside of an industrial setting. Within a decade, Dale Chihuly, with the support of John H. Hauberg and Anne Gould Hauberg, established an international program in glass that became the educational leader of the then burgeoning movement. For more than four decades, Pilchuck has been recognized as the preeminent school for the study and creation of works of art in glass. Today, this prestigious school remains as vibrant and innovative as the day it opened in 1971. Its principles are as enduring as its success to inspire creativity, transform individuals and build community. The Pilchuck Annual Auction has become the most renowned charity auction of glass art and is now in its thirty-fourth year. The artists who generously donate their best works of art give because they believe in the mission of a school that has supported their professional development. By making a purchase at the auction or by contributing to Fund-the-Future, you are playing a direct role in ensuring that Pilchuck continues to provide an excellent education to aspiring and talented artists! We hope you will join us in this very special year, celebrating and supporting fifty years of studio glass, as we look ahead to the next fifty years (and beyond!) of artistic experimentation and expression in glass. Finally, we offer our gratitude for the dedication and work of so many who make this auction possible - the hundreds of generous artists, the auction chair and committee, the trustees, volunteers, staff‌and you for your participation and support!

Tonight, through your generosity, you have a special opportunity to invest in our educational programs and help ensure that artists from around the world receive the best possible education in glass. Each year, Pilchuck Glass School awards nearly $200,000 in financial assistance, allowing aspiring and talented artists to participate in workshops and residencies. Your contribution supports: Dedicated students who strengthen their creative and professional skills in a supportive environment; developing their vision through an open exchange of knowledge between artists from dozens of countries. Inspired teachers who provide experience and guidance to students, with unlimited access to the most comprehensive range of equipment and facilities.

With sincere thanks,

Renowned artists exploring fresh directions in the use of glass that result in exhibitions, publications, presentations, and the teaching and training of future generations of artists.

Born on the island of Murano, the centuries-old glass center of the world near Venice, Italy, Lino Tagliapietra began his apprenticeship at the age of eleven with Archimede Seguso, and by time he was twenty-one, had earned the title of maestro. Over the next three decades, he was associated with several famous Muranese glass companies and in the 1970s he began his influential collaborations with artists from other countries.

Honoring a Maestro

- Any person regarded as a master at an art maes • tro [m-ı-stro]

In 1979, Tagliapietra traveled to the United States to share his techniques with glass artists at Pilchuck Glass School, forever changing American glassblowing. He was largely responsible for a new renaissance in glassblowing that swept through the world of studio glassmaking in the late twentieth century. In the mid-1980s, Tagliapietra made the transition from traditional Venetian master glassblower and glass designer to independent studio artist, devoting himself to his own artistic expression and unique works. Moving beyond excellence in execution, he now designs and makes his own work, fueled by continuous bursts of creative inspiration. Tagliapietra has made an indelible mark on glass history by raising the standards of glass craftsmanship and fostering an artists-teaching-artists culture that has revitalized the international glass arts community. For these reasons, Pilchuck Glass School is honoring his significant contribution to the field during this year marking the fiftieth anniversary of the studio glass movement.

Thank you, Lino, for your contributions to Pilchuck Glass School, the studio glass movement, and all the artists who have been inspired by the excellence of your work and the generosity of your teaching!

“Lino is living proof that sharing knowledge and experience keeps culture alive and thriving regardless of the location where it lands. The ancient culture of glassblowing, at its highest level, has landed at Pilchuck!”

About the Centerpieces Beginning as an informal effort in the 1980s, with Dale Chihuly and William Morris creating small glass pieces for Pilchuck’s early auctions, the production of centerpieces has grown into a prestigious design competition offering artists exposure to an international community of contemporary glass enthusiasts. Brooklyn-based artist Niels Cosman was selected by a jury of artists and collectors to design the centerpieces for this year’s auction. During the first half of May, Cosman worked in Pilchuck’s studios with a team of twenty-four accomplished glass artists—affectionately known as the Poleturners Union, Local 1201—to create more than one hundred unique artworks. Cosman’s organic form highlights shape, color, and optics by capitalizing on the spirit of the material and the process of working with glass. “The result is something that feels between natural and man-made,” he says. Each piece can be rocked and rotated on the spherical protrusions that dot the perimeter of the sculpture “at the whim of the viewer,” according to Cosman. “In this manner, each piece provides many views and a variety of orientations.” The design is presented in ten distinct colors. The process of creating the centerpieces is a unique example of teamwork in action. Teamwork is an important part of Pilchuck’s renowned educational programs, which includes summer workshops and yearround residencies for emerging and established artists working in all media. Cosman received a bachelor of science degree in mechanical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute

About Pilchuck Pilchuck Glass School is an international center for glass art education located in the picturesque foothills of the Cascade mountains, one hour north of Seattle near Stanwood, Washington. Each summer, Pilchuck offers a broad spectrum of courses in the uses 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 every state in the union come to Pilchuck. Since its founding in 1971 by Dale Chihuly, Anne Gould Hauberg, 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 to commit to learning 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 in which 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 and showcase the breadth and depth of contemporary art created with glass.

Jack Benaroya July 11, 1921 - May 11, 2012

Jack Benaroya blessed the Northwest community with his outstanding generosity and sense of civil responsibility. To those who knew him well, he was an exemplary human being. “Jack was a born collector. When Sam and I invited Jack and Becky to one of the small, early auctions at Pilchuck, that started his interest in glass.” Gladys Rubinstein With this introduction to Pilchuck and glass art, it wasn’t long before Jack and Becky were deeply involved with the school, serving as trustees and supporters, and building their own glass collection. The Benaroyas collected art in the same way they spent their lives – together! During trips abroad, they looked for glass to add to their collection. They approached collecting with an open mind and spirit of generosity. Jack loved being surrounded by art, so everything in their collection was displayed throughout their homes. Through collecting, they also befriended a number of artists associated with the school. Perhaps the most personal and touching piece in their collection is a glass replica of Becky’s wedding dress, which she made, cast by Karen LaMonte — a testament to their 70 years of marriage and deep love for one another.

“Jack was a cheerleader for the arts, always supportive and encouraging to artists.”

$2,000 Christine Cathie’s sculptural forms work with the depth and translucency of glass by using the twists, turns, and sweeps of curves and shifting from thick to thin to create a sense of lightness and rhythm. This creates tension within the work and a sense of frozen action. Cathie’s work is held in private, public, and corporate collections internationally.

Amie McNeel received an M.F.A. degree with a focus in sculpture from the University of California, Berkeley. Since 1990, she has taught in four academic institutions and served as the chairperson of sculpture for fourteen consecutive years. Currently, McNeel teaches sculpture in the new 3D4M (3-Dimensional Forum) program at the University of Washington, Seattle. McNeel’s art is inspired by formal symmetries found in natural systems, primarily the ocean environment. Her sculptural patterns and forms explore the dynamic edges of meeting points, convergences that reflect constant and interactive change and are alternately subtle and severe, uniform, and chaotic. Through design, her sculptures assume an alignment to these implied forces, acknowledging potentials. McNeel negotiates these extremes by shifting scale from macro to micro, interior to exterior, and working in a variety of materials, predominantly steel, wood, rubber, and glass. Her most recent work, produced during artist residencies at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, the Museum of Glass, Tacoma, Pilchuck Glass School, and The Studio at the Corning Museum of Glass, combines slip-cast ceramic components with glass and fabricated steel, continuing her interest in revealing flux and change in a static state.

She creates her diverse body of sculptural work with a complex and laborious multiple-layer technique. Varga’s creative process is a highly focused but calming game in which she plays with thousands of tiny glass elements, assembling them strategically and precisely in order to achieve the intended internal energy, light flow, and pattern. Stacks of layers are then fused in the kiln for two weeks. It is only when the works are meticulously ground and polished that they come to life.

The works explore space using glass as a substrate activated by light. The material qualities of glass transparency and translucency are the agents within the work that create dialogue between voids and solids.”

Sean O’Neill often engraves series of dots, ocular anatomy, or objects found in nature into blown and slumped glass forms. His forms are minimal yet convey a great deal about patterns found in nature as observed through the lens of daily life. With glass as his canvas, he works with shades of gray, black, and white, using coldworking techniques intended to reproduce the erosive effects of nature. Through his art, O’Neill makes a subtle statement about the effects of time, ultimately creating something aesthetically pleasing.

In 1979, Tagliapietra went to Pilchuck Glass School to teach, and American glassblowing was changed forever. Although glassblowing in America has been influenced by Europeans throughout its history, it is safe to say that studio glassblowing in the late twentieth century, in the United States and elsewhere, owes much to Lino Tagliapietra.

$6,000 John Miller began working with glass in 1987 as an undergraduate at Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven and, a decade later, earned an M.F.A. degree in sculpture at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Since 1993, he has been a staff member at Pilchuck Glass School, serving as a technician, coordinator, gaffer, and instructor. In 1998, Miller was awarded a Creative Glass Center of America Fellowship at Wheaton Village in Millville, New Jersey, where he continued to build on the concepts of his graduate work. Currently, he is an associate professor and head of the glass department at Illinois State University in Normal. He exhibits internationally and frequently lectures and demonstrates hot glass across the United States. Although Miller has experimented with many different techniques and materials, his focus is blown sculpture.

Duncan McClellan’s fascination with glass began at age five, when he visited a glass factory in West Virginia. After working with leather and clay, he finally had the opportunity to learn glassblowing at a studio in Ybor City, Florida, in 1987. McClellan continued to follow his passion, studying the creation of large-form glass vessels with Fred Kahl and John Brekke at the New York Experimental Glass Workshop. His current work depicts emotions related to family, personal growth, and the spiritual connections between people. His bold, graphic, stylized icons evoke emotional responses. The rich coloration and voluptuous shapes of his works invite closer inspection both inside and out, resulting in an interactive relationship between the interior and exterior surfaces of the vessels. The processes he uses are centered around the internal graal and overlay techniques and incorporate hand cutting, photoresist, and computer graphics. McClellan finishes these works with acid etching, fire polishing, and a six-stage process of grinding and polishing. He has donated this work in honor of Joan, Amy, and Mike Stonecipher.

Jeremy Lepisto’s artwork has historically involved the imagery and forms found within his local industrial-urban environment. Upon moving to Australia in 2009, he gained some new horizons yet lost his landscape. The works from the Crate Series were built in response to this shift. They depict and address the desire for items that are un-orderable, un-receivable, and/or undeliverable. Lepisto has taught many kiln-forming classes internationally and throughout the United States, including at Pilchuck Glass School. He was president of the Glass Art Society’s board of directors from 2009 to 2011. Lepisto received a B.F.A degree in glass and metals from Alfred University in 1997 and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. degree in sculpture at the Australian National University, Canberra.

April Surgent started working with glass in 1997 at open-access hot-shop studios in Seattle. She went on to study at the Australian National University, Canberra, where she earned a B.F.A. degree with honors, majoring in glass, in 2004. Changing her focus from blown glass to cameo-engraved glass, Surgent returned to her hometown of Seattle and set up a studio, where she makes art full-time. She exhibits, teaches, and lectures internationally and, in 2008, began instructing short courses with master Czech engraver and mentor Jiˇrí Harcuba. In 2009, she was awarded one of two Neddy fellowships through the Behnke Foundation and the New Talent award through UrbanGlass. Surgent had her first solo museum show at the Bellevue Arts Museum in 2010.

…as recollected by John Landon, nicknamed “Dune” or “Landune” (one of the earliest participants who helped with the founding of Pilchuck Glass School):

Walt Haas

November 14, 1925 – April 16, 2012

In the early 1970s, when Dale Chihuly still lived on Pilchuck Glass School’s campus and the summer “participants slept in tents in the rolling fields, there was no formal hot shop, no lodge, and no running water. In the middle of a tree farm that supported a burgeoning school and the studio glass movement there was Walt Hass who wasn’t too sure about those ‘hippies on the hill.’ Truly one of the great storytellers, Walt had that ability to have just the appropriate amount of elaboration. They were true stories, but he knew how to paint a picture that made each one extraordinary. Walt and his wife would visit campus often, always with a cooler of food – sustenance that he shared with everyone. He would bring the community of artists together with big dinners before Pilchuck had its first official chef. Walt taught residents of the Pilchuck community – who for the most part were inexperienced with rural life in the Pacific Northwest – the art of the woods and the art of splitting shakes – most notably fabricating the shakes that covered the first formal Pilchuck hot shop. I miss your stories and your company, Walt. You are a dying breed – your storytelling is a gift and a true art form. An honorary member of the “Pilchuck Peanut Farm,” Walt Hass will be remembered as a man of many talents and with a big heart, providing the care that made Pilchuck a home

for many young artists.

Masami Koda was born in Kobe, Japan, in 1966. Seamlessly combining glass, wood, copper, bronze, and silver, he creates conceptual worlds of wonder where natural forms have profound, spiritual meaning. Koda explores the relationship between human beings and nature by incorporating symbols of human presence with magnified views of organic processes, some of which happen not only outside of our awareness but outside the scope of our perception. Koda explains: “I wanted to express how nature is changing and growing without us paying attention. These things are important and have value in the world, whether or not they can be seen.”

Lawrence Morrell’s works are inspired by science, nature, and the subtle, minute textures that surround us but are invisible to the naked eye. Morrell initially studied fine art at the University of Oregon before moving his studio to New York, where he collaborated on the New York Vietnam Veterans Memorial, a forty-foot-long, illuminated, etched-glass wall in lower Manhattan. In 1994, he returned to Oregon, where he created a glass staircase carved with a tree branch motif and embedded with thousands of glowing fiber-optic strands, a sculpture for Visa International, and a thirty-foot carved-glass sculpture embedded with LED lights for the Portland Center for the Performing Arts. This interactively illuminated sculpture was inspired by research images from the CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) supercollider.

$4,600 Marco Romero, from Mexico City, and Débora Gurman, from Argentina, have been working together since 2000. Romero was a teaching assistant for Narcissus Quagliata at Pilchuck Glass School in 1999 and 2000, and Gurman studied at Belgrano Arts School in Buenos Aires. Romero and Gurman operate a glass school in Mexico City, conduct workshops in Central and South America on fused glass, moldmaking, and lost-wax casting, and promote glass as an art medium. They exhibit their work nationally and internationally and have also developed an artistic glass jewelry line that they sell internationally.

Abi Spring is interested in the mysterious, the erased, painted over, cloudy, destroyed, ambiguous, muffled. A noise that she can barely hear draws her attention more than the blasting of a siren. Spring wants to create a similar experience of prolonged investigation with her work. She wants the viewer to pause, wonder, move around. When she is unable to easily categorize what she is looking at, she exists in a state in which she feels she has dissolved into what she is seeing. This is the experience she wants to share.

$2,400 As the son of a Northern California potter, Granite Calimpong grew up with hands that were covered in clay long before he discovered glass. He graduated with a degree in interdisciplinary computing in the arts from the University of California, San Diego, where he was first introduced to glass. His attraction to the material and process was immediate. Growing up in a household full of handmade objects has fostered a lifelong connection to the subtleties of function and form through the scrutiny of everyday use, which has made a large impact on his practice as a glassmaker. When he’s not working in glass, Calimpong fishes, throws pots, fires his wood-fired pizza/bread oven, or muses about his next project. He lives and works in Seattle.

$975 Peter Voulkos (1924-2002) was an American artist of Greek descent. He is known for his Abstract Expressionist ceramic sculptures, which crossed the traditional divide between ceramic crafts and fine arts. Voulkos loved working in front of an audience.

Pino Cherchi’s design elements draw upon symbolism from ancient civilizations while using multiple media such as sandcast, hand-blown, etched, and painted glass and incorporating copper, sterling silver, and other metals. He combines a technical base learned from the masters with an innovative curiosity that pushes the materials to new levels in designing and executing one-of-a-kind works of art. Cherchi’s work is currently on display in galleries throughout Asia, Europe, and the United States.

Danielle Blade and Stephen Gartner operate Gartner and Blade Glass and have been business partners since 1995. Over the past decade, they have been developing a series of pieces that explore their fascination with the use of found objects in the rituals of primitive cultures. In these pieces, they hope to convey reverence for and an understanding of the value of our natural resources. Natural elements such as bones, antlers, wood, vines, fossils, and rock formations have inspired their signature designs, which include covered vessels and sculptural objects. Their work combines traditional handblown technique with innovative color application and original sculpting techniques. Before opening their own studio, Blade and Gartner studied with prominent American and European glass artists. Both worked as glasshouse gaffers and glassblowing instructors. Their work is held in both public and private collections worldwide and is represented by both national and international art and fine craft galleries.

Cheryl Zahniser attended the University of Oregon and graduated with a B.F.A. degree in painting. After graduation, she worked for Nordstrom, where she applied her creativity to the world of advertising. In 2006, Zahniser dedicated her passion for fine art and studied with various artists such as Steven Assael and Bo Bartlett. In 2009, she attended Pilchuck Glass School, where she studied with KéKé Cribbs, learning how to use glass as a canvas and opening up a whole new way of expression. Zahniser’s current work focuses on large-format still life and figurative pieces in oils, charcoal, and glass.

Jennifer Umphress was born and raised in California, and after visiting Hawaii in 1991 and falling in love with its beauty, she made it her home. She began her career in glass in 2000, working and apprenticing in a small studio retail shop in the islands. Umphress continued to expand her knowledge by attending Sundance Art Center in Santa Cruz, California, in 2002. Wanting to learn traditional concepts of glass, she spent one month in Murano, Italy (November 2005) studying under Cesare Toffolo. Since then Umphress has had the opportunity to take workshops from Richard LaLonde, Robert Mickelsen, and Janis Miltenberger. In 2006, she relocated to Kingston, Washington, hoping that the Pacific Northwest would provide as much artistic inspiration as Hawaii did. Umphress’s work is constantly changing and evolving, but she still draws her biggest influence from the Islands and ocean that surrounded her for so long.

As a glass artist, Ginger Kelly has worked mainly with blown glass. She lived and worked in Seattle for more than twenty years and was happy to be part of the large glass community and work with many wonderful people. Kelly moved to Louisiana in 2005, near New Orleans, but relocated to Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, after Hurricane Katrina. She still blows glass when she is in Seattle, but because of the limited availability of hot glass in Cajun Country, she has expanded her work to include glass fusing, flameworking, and coldworking. Cypress Knees is inspired by the beautiful outgrowths of the cypress tree’s horizontal roots, known as cypress knees, that grow up around the trunk in the swamps and bayous of south Louisiana. Kelly’s work is shown in New Orleans, Seattle, and select galleries in the United States. She has shown at the ACC shows, New York Gift Show, New Orleans Jazz Fest, and many more.

Today, King is still witnessing dramatic change due to forest industries. The loss of the Gondwana Rain Forests of Australia is a major influence in her work.

LIVE AUCTION You may preview Live Auction items in the Fifth Avenue Room of The Westin Seattle from the time the doors open until the start of the Live Auction. Once the Live Auction begins, the Fifth Avenue Room will be converted to the Art Pickup Room, and items will no longer be available for viewing. The Live Auction will begin at 7:15 p.m. and continue without interruption until all items have been auctioned. 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 shall be deemed a legal contract with that bidder to purchase the item.

How the Auction Works BID CARDS AND BIDDING NUMBERS When you check in, you will receive a bidder number and card. All sales will be recorded and tracked using the number printed on your bid card. If you registered with a guest, you and your guest will share the same bidder number unless you request otherwise when registering. See below for information on the bidding process. You will also register your name and phone number to participate in the silent auction. If you have any questions with the bidding process, please approach an ABC professional in red to assist you. At the close of the auction, your purchases will be totaled and charged as directed. For your security, you can view your purchases in the ‘My Bids’ section of the AuctionsByCellular mobile website. We will mail your statement of purchases and charges within seven days. FUND-THE-FUTURE Near Live Auction item 43, Kip Toner will announce the opportunity to support Fund-the-Future. See page 3. Kip will invite you to hold up your card to pledge $100, $250, $500, $1,000, $5,000, $10,000, $15,000, $25,000, or $50,000 toward this cause. Hold your card in the air until your bidder number is read aloud. You will pay your pledge along with your auction purchases. You may hold up your auction bid card multiple times to pledge more than one amount. THE SILENT AUCTION The seven sections of the Silent Auction all open at 5:00 p.m. They close at staggered times throughout the evening, with the Super Section closing last. (See page 13 of the evening program for Silent Auction closing times). Each item offered in the Silent Auction will be available for bidding using your smartphone, cell phone, or concierge ABC bidder. If you emerge as the highest bidder at the close of the auction, your bid constitutes a legal contract to purchase the item. MINIMUM BID A minimum bid has been established for each Silent Auction item. You may not bid below this amount. SILENT AUCTION BIDDING To make silent bidding easier all bidding will be conducted through electronic bidding. To utlize electronic bidding visit pilchuck.auction-bid.org to register your cell number, or text ‘PILCHUCK’ to 68494. If you are unfamiliar with the technology or prefer not to use it, please utilize a concierge bidder who will act as your personal shopper during the event, and will place bids for you using their provided iPads. You may bid on any item in any Silent Auction section until the section is closed. At the posted closing time, bidding for that section will immediately end. If you were the successful bidder on any item you will have received a notice so that you may check on your bidding results. After the Silent Auction closes, any unsold items will be moved to the Purple Section of the Silent Auction for continued bidding. The Purple Section will close 10 minutes following the conclusion of the Live Auction.

CHECKOUT Only cash, personal checks, and Visa, MasterCard, and American Express credit cards will be accepted as payment. All purchases are final, and purchased items must be paid for and removed from the premises during the evening. Items that are not removed or are left in the care of one of the shipping companies will be shipped to the purchaser at the purchaser’s expense. No exchanges or refunds will be allowed. SALES TAX AND TAX DEDUCTIBILITY No sales tax will be charged, as all items have been donated to Pilchuck Glass School. Pilchuck Glass School is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization. If the price you pay for a piece exceeds its fair market value as stated in the auction catalog, the excess portion of the price may be tax deductible as a charitable contribution. Please consult with your tax advisor or preparer for details. SHIPPING Pilchuck Glass School will not ship your auction purchases. Whenever possible, it is best to take your purchases home with you. This ensures safe transport for your delicate glass items. Pilchuck volunteers will pack your purchases to take home at no extra charge. For your convenience, Pilchuck has arranged for an outside shipping vendor to make its services available during the auction evening. For more information about shipping options, visit the vendor at the Shipping Information table. A Seattle UPS Store will pack your art purchases in a second box and ship items at standard UPS rates plus a consideration for packing materials and labor. You will have the option to purchase insurance for your artwork, which is highly recommended. A UPS Store representative will be available during the auction, and you will be able to sign up for shipment of your purchases at that time. Once you have made arrangements with the UPS Store, Pilchuck Glass School is not responsible for your artwork and cannot, by shipping company regulations, intervene on your behalf with the shipper or carrier. You must resolve any concerns regarding artwork lost or damaged during shipping by contacting the UPS Store directly. Items left at the auction without shipping instructions will be shipped to the purchaser at the purchaser’s expense. GENERAL RULES AND INFORMATION Pilchuck Glass School reserves the right to add or withdraw Auction items without notice. Pilchuck has attempted to describe and catalog all items accurately, but all items are offered “as is, where is.” Pilchuck neither warrants nor represents, and in no event shall be responsible for, the correctness of the descriptions, genuineness, authorship, provenance, or condition of the items. No statement made in this catalog, orally at the auction, or elsewhere shall be deemed such a warranty, representation, or assumption of liability. The values listed are estimates of fair market value. Items have not been appraised. Each person issued a bid number (bidder) assumes all risks and hazards related to the auction and items obtained at the auction. Each bidder agrees to hold harmless from any liability arising therefrom Pilchuck Glass School, its elected and appointed officials, members and employees, the auctioneer, the auction company and its agents and employees, and the event organizers, sponsors, and/or volunteers connected with the auction. All items purchased become the property of the successful bidder once that bidder is acknowledged by the auctioneer and has completed the checkout process. We hope you enjoy your evening, wish you the best of luck on your auction bidding, and thank you for supporting Pilchuck Glass School.

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. CENTERPIECE AUCTION When bidding opens at 5:00 p.m., you will have the opportunity to participate in the Centerpiece Silent Auction. You may bid on any centerpiece at any table using your smartphone, cell phone or concierge ABC bidder. Following Live Auction item 20, the Centerpiece Silent Auction will close. If you are a successful bidder for a centerpiece, collect your purchase through the regular checkout process once the auction is over. All centerpieces will be removed from the tables after the close of centerpiece bidding. Unsold centerpieces will be moved to the Purple Section of the Silent Auction. Procedures for purchase of unsold centerpieces will be the same as those for Silent Auction items.

Lost-wax casting A method of casting whereby a wax or wax-coated 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. Mold-blown Glass formed into a shape by being blown into a mold, which is usually made of wood, metal, or plaster.

Glossary of Glass Terms

Murrine Patterned glass cane cut into sections in order to form small disks that are used in decorating glass or constructing glass forms. Neodymium A manufactured glass that changes color under different lighting, appearing lavender under tungsten light and daylight and blue under fluorescent light. 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.

Bits Pieces of molten glass snipped off a blowpipe or punty rod and applied hot to a glass form. Canes Thin rods of glass, usually with a twisted pattern in multiple colors (much like a candy cane, hence the name), that are used to add pattern to blown glass.

Paradise™ paint A specially formulated glass paint that does not change color when exposed to the intense heat of molten glass. Paradise™ paints can be used for encased painting or graal techniques.

Dichroic A manufactured glass that manipulates light in two different ways. Color is transmitted through the glass, and complementary colors are reflected from the surface.

Pâte de verre A French term 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.

Electroplate To adhere metal to glass by dipping the glass into an electrically charged solution. Encase painting on glass To paint a glass object with glass paint and then reheat the glass and gather more hot glass over the surface, encasing the paint in glass. Etch To create a design by cutting away the surface of finished glass with a tool or by treating it with acid.

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.

Flameworking/lampworking The process of using a specially designed torch or lamp to heat glass rods for sculpting, blowing, and bead making.

Sandblast To blow or blast sand onto a piece, etching away layers of glass. Masking is used to create patterns.

Fuse To melt together two or more pieces of glass in a kiln.

Sand blowing The process of blowing a bubble of hot glass into a sand mold.

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. Howlite A borate mineral found in evaporite deposits. Commonly used to make decorative objects such as small carvings or jewelry deposits. Incalmo A glassblowing process that joins two or more bubbles of hot glass, 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 handengraving tools. Kiln A high-temperature electric oven, usually monitored by computer, used for casting, fusing, and slumping glass. Kiln-cast Glass formed through the use of a mold, usually plaster, which is filled with crushed glass that is melted in a kiln to produce a solid glass form. Laminate To use heat or glue to join pieces of glass.

152

Reticello The process of joining two conical vases covered with thin colored rods, one vase arranged clockwise and the other counterclockwise. The result is a meshlike net with an air bubble inside each diamond. The different thicknesses of the rods within each diamond cause the air bubble to form.

Lampworking See flameworking.

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. Underlay A thin layer of clear or colored glass on the inside of a piece. Vitreography The process of creating a print from a glass plate. Wrap A strand of glass, typically but not always of a contrasting color, applied hot to a vessel. Zanfirico The process of heating cut canes of glass (usually with an interior spiral pattern of colored glass) and gathering them onto a pipe to be blown into a shape. Formerly called latticino or latticinio.
