• Julian Maturino Demonstration

    May 8th, Glass Axis is pleased to present Julian Maturino for our monthly glass-blowing demonstration.  Demonstration begins at 6:00pm on the next Franklinton Friday.


    I first started blowing glass at California State University of Fullerton, in 2005. In school, I learned a traditional Venetian style, by Joe Cariati. I was immediately intrigued by the technical process and found my passions working with form, function, and color. From there, I began working in hot glass production studios across Southern California, which instilled a strong design-aesthetic in my future work. In further efforts to continue my education, I sought out opportunities to assist and study under multiple masters. Thus far, I have attended workshops as both a student and a teaching assistant at the Penland School of Crafts, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, Pilchuck Glass School, and the Corning Museum of Glass.

      Julian is a great glassblower. And he’s a great teacher, he talks as he works.
      This is a demo you don’t want to miss.

      Really interesting demo. Julian picked up a matrix of beer bottle necks like you might pick up cane or murrini. Then built a lattice-work bowl out of it. Can’t wait to see the pictures.

      I’m now buying my beer by the color of the bottles.
