Watch Dan Friday sculpt a glass bear totem

Dan Friday (Lummi) recently completed a white-hot residency at the Corning Museum of Glass, and the museum has produced this excellent video that details the hours of work and concentration that goes into making one of Dan’s Totem figures. This three hour video is a great introduction to hotsculpting, and it includes something we’ve never seen: is that seriously a camera inside the furnace? Incredible!

Dan Friday’s work will be featured this May in “Reflections of Our Ancestors: Lillian Pitt & Dan Friday“, opening May 3rd at our gallery.
