Through The Eyes of a Child

Exhibition opening on Jul 8, 2016 6:00 to 8:00pm!  Glass Axis has partnered with Starling Middle School (Columbus), Columbus Preparatory Academy, and Winchester Trail Elementary School (Canal Winchester).  Students from these schools were asked to draw an imaginary creature and write a story about it, and their teachers submitted these drawings and stories to Glass Axis.  From all of these, we chose nine designs to turn into three-dimensional pieces of glass art.  We are scheduling glass-making demonstrations for each selected piece.  The public is invited to stop by and watch these fantastical drawings come to life in glass!

This program and exhibition brought to you in part with the help of:


April 26, 2016: “Corn Dog,” designed by Rakaya Clark from Winchester Trail Elementary School, was completed by Rose Succi and Shawn Everette.


May 10, 2016: “Koala Pig,” designed by Haley Grilli from Winchester Trail Elementary School, was completed by Alex Fresch and Rose Succi.
