Mark Zirpel spoke on "The Glass Isn't the Thing". Mark Zirpel presented recent work that explores photovoltaics, rain-powered sound sculptures, incompatibility, and modeling the solar system.
The presentation was part of the GAS conference. In recognition of the Toledo Museum of Art's role as the cradle of the American Studio Glass Movement, the Glass Art Society held its 2012 conference in Toledo, Ohio. In 1962, two experimental glass workshops held at the Museum proved that glass was a medium suitable for the expression of artistic ideas in a studio environment. They launched a movement that was propelled by an unprecedented collective enthusiasm and since has turned into an international phenomenon that continues to inspire experimentation.
