“Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man’s desire to understand.” — NEIL ARMSTRONG

Welcome to the future, friends! As we join together in support of Pratt Fine Arts Center tonight, we reflect back on a time when we believed that anything was possible; we recall a mid-century moment in time when curiosity sparked creativity and imagination boosted innovation. A rocket-fueled race to space infused popular culture with a shared sense of wonder and somehow we knew that we could do things no one had ever done before. That same spirit is alive and well at Pratt every day. Discoveries are made and connections are formed as students—ages 8 to 80—explore new frontiers. Artists push themselves into the great unknown as their work travels to new dimensions. We may not be racing into space, but we are opening minds through art and traversing new territories each and every day. We are fostering the great explorers of our time. Tonight we raise our paddles high and bid boldly to ensure that this exploration remains accessible to thousands of students and artists in the coming year. Together we make a vital investment in art and artists that will pay off to infinity and beyond. It takes a full crew to pilot this ship and each member is critical to our launch and trajectory. And so we offer our immense gratitude to the staff, board, and committee volunteers for making this evening possible. You are truly out of this world! And to our intrepid passengers, thank you for joining us on this journey tonight! We are honored to see so many loyal supporters and new friends on board, moon boots and all. Together we will advance our mission to make art accessible to everyone. We love you to the moon and back! Cheers,

Pratt Fine Arts Center

In Memoriam Nancy Delaney Alvord, 1922 – 2017 Nancy Delaney Alvord, whose creative mind, generous spirit, and joyous love of beauty motivated a lifetime of philanthropy, passed away on December 22, 2017. Together with her husband Buster, she led a life of wisdom, compassion, and generosity devoted to interests in education, arts, and public service. Nancy’s service in the local arts community was truly transformational. When she was elected President of the Seattle Repertory Theatre Board of Trustees, a change in the bylaws was required—the founders having not foreseen a woman occupying the leadership position. At the time she observed prophetically, “I’m glad this modern world came about and I can be myself and have my own name.” Nancy’s interest in advancing arts and culture also benefitted Seattle Art Museum, Henry Art Gallery, Meany Hall, KUOW, and countless others, including Pratt Fine Arts Center. Nancy’s spirit lives on through her family as well as the many organizations and individuals she inspired along the way.

Pratt Fine Arts Center

About Pratt Fine Arts Center Pratt Fine Arts Center began in 1976 as a tiny art facility with a big vision to build a community of artists and an educational center providing the tools and the training to support the creation of art. Today, Pratt makes art accessible to everyone, offering a place for spirited exchange, self-expression and personal transformation through creativity. A unique multidisciplinary visual arts resource, Pratt provides education and instruction, community programs and professionally equipped art making facilities.

Your artist is inside. Pratt Fine Arts Center is proud to serve as a lasting tribute to Edwin T. Pratt, a civil rights leader who devoted his life to improving the quality of life for all people. Mr. Pratt served as Executive Director of the Seattle Urban League from 1961 to 1969. His assassination in that year by unknown assailants was deeply felt by many Seattleites who depended on Pratt’s calm leadership during a period of social upheaval. For almost four decades, Pratt has been providing the Northwest community with the opportunity to experience art. Pratt’s classes teach more than 3,800 students and its studios serve more than 300 working artists each year. Its classes, lectures and programs reach more than 20,000 people annually. Affordable studio space with an unparalleled array of equipment provides artists of all ages and abilities with the opportunity to learn, to experiment and to create.

Lynne Hull

Sarah Kaye

Copper and bronze, 21 x 5 x 5, 2018

Ceramic, 12 x 15, 2017



Known for its hardness and permanence, Lynne Hull is challenged to create metalwork that is soft, sensual and organic in expression. Using the industrial metal spinning process for over 30 years, she has found herself shaping sheet metal into sculptural forms that explore our perceptions about metal and its properties.

Large Bowl | $125


Sarah Kaye’s one-of-a-kind center piece is slipcast in porcelain with mason stained slip used as an accent. The bowl is glazed on the inside for practicality and shine, and the outer surface is unglazed so you can enjoy the softness of the vitrified porcelain with your fingers. Food safe, dishwasher safe and stain resistant -life is for living, not handwashing dishes.


Whoha | $300

Cathy Chase

Curtiss Brock

Cast Glass, 10.5 x 5.5 x 1, 2018

Blown glass, 6 x 6 x 14



This body of work by Cathy Chase is about the ordinary everyday object that often gets overlooked but is quite necessary for success of the work, a remembrance of all hands that have used and touched this tool. Cathy’s work has been shown at The Bellevue Arts Museum, Viscosity Gallery, PDX Gallery and Pilchuck Auctions.

Vase | $300



An established glass artist with over 25 museum collections around the world, Curtiss Brock founded CB Glass as a vehicle for developing limited edition blown glass pieces that focus on function and the originality of design. Donated from the collection of Bernie Funk.

Raku fired Ceramic, 8 x 6 x 8



Susan Balshor was a long-time instructor of mold-making and kiln casting at Pratt and an active member of the Education Committee.

Susan passed away in 2013.

Silent Auction 1


Jason Brown’s piece represents a slightly abstracted feather, specifically an eagle feather. Among Native communities, an eagle’s feather is a highly-valued symbol of respect. Made from steel, the material used building the cities that have displaced the Native communities and cultures, this sculpture combines elements of each into something new, a symbol of growth together.

Coin Purses (Set of 3) | $400 ITEM

Feather #14 | $175

Lotus Slippers | $250 Raku Fired Ceramic, 6x6x4



Susan Balshor was a long-time instructor of mold-making and kiln casting at Pratt and an active member of the Education Committee.

Finding a Stellar Soulmate | $217 Bronze & Glass, 8x 8 x 6, 2018


A collaborative piece between Bowman, Balshor and Haddix about the search for love that understands our true nature. The lense expresses the depth at which we understand our world. The meteorite, the time and space we search to find our match and the ring the moment between the viewer and the meteorite. When shaken, the meteorite will show the viewer a new side of itself.


Susan Balshor


Cliff Goodman

Gus Schairer

Glass, 12 x 8 x 8, 2018

Soapstone on Granite, 10.5 x 9 x 5, 2014

Silver Foil Vessel | $525


Sarah Bryant

Mary Anne Carter

Fused, Roll-up, Blown Glass, 12 x 6 x 6, 2017

Screen Printed Lamé Soft Sculpture, 18 x 10 x 3, 2017


Although traditionally Sarah Bryant has worked in two dimensional media, she loves working in glass because of the deceptive aspects of stiffness and stability. In this piece, Sarah is fascinated how a solid, fused pattern arrangement in a rectangle can be completely changed by reheating and rolling it into a closed container, then blown and twisted into a vessel.

Fire Sauce Soft Sculpture Trio | $180


Originally created in August 2017 as part of Mary Anne Carter’s installation Women in the Style of Taco Bell, this collection of Fire Sauce soft sculptures features excerpts of poems that relate to femininity by Sommer Browning, Monica McClure, and Melissa Crawford. Equal parts playful and uncanny, the installation featured a kaleidoscopic display of costumes, performances, and visual art intended to glitter bomb the patriarchy with humor and flamboyance.




Twist in Blue-Green Vase | $400



George “Gus” Schairer is an award-winning, internationally recognized sculptor who has been the featured artist at Whetstone, Blue Heron, and Heron’s Nest Galleries. His work has been shown at Kirsten Gallery, The Artist’s Gallery, The Hardware Store, Barnworks, Silverwood Gallery, Red Barn Gallery, the Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts, and the VAA and Poncho Auctions. Donated from the collection of Bernie Funk.


Cliff Goodman began his journey as a glass artist in 1976. He trained under Fritz Driesbach and attended the Pilchuck School and Penland School of Crafts. His passion for the landscape of the Northwest is reflected in the wide range of organic forms and patterns in his pieces. He opened his workspace to the public as the Seattle Glassblowing Studio in 1991.

Isis Reclining | $300

Brennan Kasperzak & Ali VandeGrift

Benjamin Grabstein Wrapped Basket | $250

Blown glass, cane drawn, sandblasted, 8 x 10, 2016

Benjamin Grabstein is a glass maker and architectural designer in the greater Seattle area. Wrapped Basket was inspired by ancient roman glass. Wrapped Basket is intended to be a modern interpretation of an ancient roman vessel, but also appear aged, as if it could be an ancient object.



Ali VandeGrift and Brennan Kasperzak have been collaborating on large-scale work since spring of 2013, scaling and translating flamework to hot shop techniques, and creating new and innovative works of art. They make most of their collaborative work at Pratt.


Glass, 10 x 9 x 9, 2017


Silent Auction 1

Sedona Sunrise Basket | $500

Robin Oakes

Tom Henscheid

Glass: fused, coldworked, blown, 12 x 7, 2017

Madrona wood, 13 x 5, 2017



When Robin Oakes works with glass, she tries to include as many of the techniques she has learned in her travels through the world exploring this material. Her pattern bar rollups capture the ebb and flow of nature and the colors of the earth. This piece brings to mind a fresh peach on a warm summer day.

Salad Bowl Set | $500


Tom Henscheid received a BFA from Boise State University in 1976, with majors in printmaking and photography. For the last 40 years, Tom has worked as a professional craftsman using wood, metals and other unconventional building materials to create furniture, architectural components, and surface finishes for many of Seattle’s finest homes.


Peachy | $750


Benjamin Grabstein

Scott Szloch

Glass, 9 x 9 x 9, 2017

Forged mild steel, 8x 8 x 3, 2012



Benjamin Grabstein is a glass maker, and architectural designer in the greater Seattle area. Blue and Gray Artifact was created as an exploration of color, texture, and form. The piece was inspired by the qualities of ancient artifacts and the physical changes that occur to an object over time, giving the object a new life.

Isamu | $1000


A forging instructor since 2001, most of Scott Szloch’s work is custom architectural ironwork usually obtained by word of mouth. Isamu knows there is no beginning and no end, and that there is no positive without the negative. Forged from a ring of solid steel, this sculpture is named for Isamu Noguchi, an early influence for Scott, as it reminds him of Noguchi’s stone carving Black Sun.


Blue and Gray Artifact | $300

Mariusz Rynkiewicz

Rosie Daniel

Glass, 12 x 5.5 x 5.5, 2018

Hotcast Glass, 23kt Gold Leaf, 2 x 6 x 6, 2018



Mariusz Rynkiewicz is in love with the creative aspect of glass, from casting to blowing. He was taught by the best glass blowers and designers at the Krosno Glass Works.

This piece shows one of Mariusz’s newest techniques: ink on glass, made on stein glass windows scrap from stein glass factory Spectrum.

Based in Seattle, WA, Rosie Daniel is an artist, traveler, writer, and yogi. Her hotcast glass works are designed with meditation and relaxation in mind.

Paul van den Bijgaart

Andrew Horch

Blown Glass, 3.5 x 4, 2018

Glass, 12 x 7 x 7, 2016

Bubble Glasses (set of 4) | $200


Jeanne Marie Ferraro

Fused & Slumped Glass, 12 x 12 x 4, 2017

Glass, 3 x 5, 2018



Traditionally, Sarah Bryant has worked in two dimensional media. Her recent shift to glass has allowed her to explore transforming ideas and images into three dimensions. In this piece, the startling contrast of the steel blue glass coming into contact and not with clear glass during firing most completely illustrates this phenomenon that fascinates her.

Silly Glasses | $275


Jeanne Marie Ferraro is a glassblower, sculptor and painter, and a Pratt instructor since 1996. She made this piece out of the love of glass and the silliness of the nose. All of her portraits, whether drawn, painted, or sculpted, are serious and solemn. With these glasses, she laughs.


Study in Steel Blue | $175


Sarah Bryant


Andrew Horch is an engineer during the week and a rabid glass blower on the weekends. He is currently exploring some of the more unusual properties of reactive colors in blown glass. When combined, some reactive glass colors are colors that when combined chemical interactions create additional colors or textures. The Red Swirl Vase is made by layering reactive colors on top of each other and then raking the glass to form patterns.

Silent Auction 1


Paul van den Bijgaart’s creative exploration with glass began in 2007. His knowledge, passion and technical ability has taken him across the US and abroad, with a professional practice encompassing both functional objects and sculptural artworks utilizing a variety of hot and cold processes.

Vicki Platts-Brown

Kirsten Flaherty

Intaglio, 16 x 22, 2017

Mezzotint, 15 x 11, 2017

Nautilus I | $250



For Vicki Platts-Brown, intaglio is a medium that exacts a price from the artist. Copper, acid, rosin, inks, and room temperature, like nature, are ever changing and challenging. Altering the smooth copper surface often produces surprises, and etching artist learn to incorporate and appreciate these gifts - not fight them. This print was created with two plates with some parts hand drawn and others direct impressions of plants she picked up during her walks.

For Vicki Platts-Brown, the components of Intaglio - copper, acid, rosin, inks, room temp-, like nature, are ever changing and challenging. The requirements and possibilities of copper are what continue to draw her in, and the genetics of nature is what she tries to convey. Two plates were used in this print. She hand rendered some of the objects and with others used dried plants which were pressed into the wax.

Dog Portrait | $300


In her most recent series of mezzotints, Kirsten Flaherty has focused on depicting pit bulls in the hope to inspire a more positive view of a nationally misunderstood animal. These portraits seek to present pit bulls that are playful and trustworthy, and further encourage reform of the cultural stigma that causes some to become uneasy when a pit bull approaches.





In Tina Albro’s prints, all the sensory images she files away emerge in designs that are not exactly realist or abstract--they contain recognizable elements. In one print, an owl and a tree; in another print a shoreline or a bus and a map.

Justin Kern’s work presents the theory of a fourth dimension, which he translates into a transcendental space where you’re looking through the glass. The first dimension of space is length, the second is width, the third is height, and the fourth one is duration. Duration can be a time-lapse of an event, so he creates a visual motion through the use of line and color.

creating unique color combinations. With many years of experience in traditional Japanese papermaking, she often uses washi to introduce texture to her prints. Her luminous, dream-like works are influenced by expansive views of the Puget Sound and Northwest skies.

Process guides her work and ink lends itself quite well to the trial and error methods she seeks. Ink can spatter and create a mess. Possibly a beautiful mess.

Raven Skyriver Primavera | $1800

Solid Sculpted glass, 3x6x5, 2018


Live Auction


Raven Skyriver started blowing glass at the age of sixteen. Raven’s mentor, Lark Dalton, taught him how to build glass blowing equipment and trained him in the traditional Venetian technique. In 2003, Raven was invited to join the Williams Morris team. Raven shows his work nationally and internationally. For Raven, growing up in the Pacific Northwest on a small island translated into ample time on and around the water. Some of his most memorable moments in life are those of having his first salmon on the line, or a humpback whale feeding off the bow of his kayak. These unforgettable experiences dictate the work he makes today. He attempts to capture the essence of the animals that he depicts, and speak to the viewer’s own understanding of these creatures. He also hopes to draw into question the delicate balance of nature that is often taken for granted.
