Martin Janecky Glassblowing
Martin Janecky began his career with glass at the age of 13 and later explored sculpting methods in the Czech Republic. By the time he was 20, he was employed by leading artists and designers around the world to assist and execute specific works. Mr. Janecky has served as an instructor, visiting artist, and gaffer at several glassmaking schools, including The Studio, Penland School of Crafts, and Pilchuck Glass School.
The class he taught focused on unique techniques and approaches to solid and blown sculpting, emphasizing the freedom to explore process as well as the potential of the material. Students learned bit work, and the use of various torches and the garage.
