Artist Talk: Timothy Horn, Feb 26, 11am PST
Join artist Timothy Horn for a virtual discussion of his work, process, and career. His practice unites the natural and the constructed, while exploring the area of slippage between the organic and the artificial. He has worked in a variety of media including blown glass, crystalized rock sugar, and various metals. For the past decade, Horn has been inspired by patterns of 17th-century jewelry, and 19th-century studies of natural forms such as lichen, coral, and seaweed.
This talk is presented in conjunction with the Craft in America Center exhibition, Making Waves: Ocean Ecology and Craft, on view through August 21, 2020. This event was live streamed on February 26, 2021.
