The glassworks featured in the upcoming exhibit are "too hot" to handle. Many of the forms are products of processes used to create innovative glassworks and are dangerous and extremely difficult. Molten glass can be unpredictable and less malleable than expected. All glass artists will agree, "When you are too hot, you're hot."
