Encounters in Glass: James Mongrain and Jason Christian
The Chihuly Collection presents a new temporary exhibition which brings together two Seattle based glass artists working in Italian techniques but each with their own flair of inspiration. James Mongrain is well known in the glass community for his technical prowess and his newest work is heavily inspired by creatures of the sea, both real and legendary. Jason Christian is an emerging artist in his own right with refined caning techniques and visual references to Faberge.
