This episode is partially funded by the The Pittsburgh Foundation and The Heinz Endowment in reception of the Advancing Black Arts in Pittsburgh Grant, and residency hosted by the Pittsburgh Glass Center.
Thank you for listening to the Taming Lightning Podcast. I’d like to thank Cork Marcheschi for taking the time to record for the podcast, as well Patrick Collentine for the introduction. We touched on a few art themed topics that I would love to explore fully in their own episode. If there’s take away, I would say to make art that your very excited about, because that’s he work you’ll make your best efforts to achieve.
Also, I'd like to thank Pittsburgh Glass Center for supporting me as a place of research and inspiration, as well as encouraging me to pursue this project, and the Plasma Art Alliance where I have access to the well of knowledge and connects me to some amazing people. Last but not least this trip was made possible through the support of the Advancing Black Arts in Pittsburgh Grant provided by The Pittsburgh Foundation and The Heinz endowment.
Feel free to share, comment, and subscribe.
See you next time,
