A quick post here to let you all know that a former professor of mine; Koen Vanderstukken has just completed a book that he has been working on for the past 8 years and it looks incredible! I'll definitely be adding it to the Turnstyle Library. Koen has had a major influence on the Canadian glass scene in his short time here and his accreditations speak for themselves. I'm really looking forward to cracking into this. The gallery on the Indiegogo page is gorgeous and I think I'm in for a treat. Check down below to find out how you can donate towards the publishing and get yourself a copy!
Over the next few weeks I'll be sharing some older video content that I produced during my time at Harbourfront Centre's Glassblowing Studio. I feel blessed to have been able to spend those years surrounded by creative colleagues that eventually became close friends. I would highly suggest any creative professional consider applying for a residency down there as there is no place quite like it. The support that they showed (and continue to show) me has been vital in my creative career. I was sad to leave but honored to be asked to speak at their annual Viva Vocé event back in 2012. Click below to see the video! It's in two parts. Have a great week! -Clayton
