Guest Artist at Corning Museum of Glass
This past summer I was invited to be a Guest Artist at the Corning Museum of Glass and featured at on of the Museum's 2300 Degrees parties.  My assistant Ian Whitt and I had a great time working with the team at the museum, and blowing glass in front of 3000 people was exciting.  My demo from the 2300 Degree event was livestreamed and now resides on CMoG's YouTube channel so you can watch it here.
Elder Gallery of Contemporary Art, Charlotte, NC

I recently returned from the grand opening show of Elder Gallery of Contemporary Art in Charlotte, NC where my work was featured in their "Come Curious" show along with four amazing painters and glass sculpture by Jon Kuhn and Marlene Rose. They had three excellent days of events where all featured artists gave lunch talks and attended opening parties.  You can check out their website, but if you are in Charlotte be sure to visit--it's the nicest gallery in the city and all the work is beautifully curated and presented.
New Edition of David Patchen GLASS now available!

The 4th edition of my book, with a foreword by Bill Gudenrath of the Corning Museum of Glass is hot off the press.  

It's significantly updated and features my most recent work and new series. The new foreword by Bill Gudenrath provides a brief summary of the history of murrine and offers context and an editorial perspective on my current work.

You can order them from Amazon in a few weeks or me now (I'll be cheaper:), but you can also view a free pdf version online here.
Glass Art Magazine - Feature Article
The folks at Glass Art Magazine did a cover feature on my work earlier this year and was planning on doing another article exclusively for their subs.  Well, they decided to make this second article, David Patchen: Glass for the Inquisitive Mind, available online so anyone who wants can check it out.  It covers how glass is my second career, my untraditional education and thoughts on music and visual arts.  You can get a copy here.
