Visiting Artist Jay Macdonell
Jay Macdonell has worked globally for artists, designers, organizations, and architects as a project manager, design consultant, and gaffer. He served as Pilchuck’s Educational Coordinator and is now the Director of Material Exploration and Development at Bocci, a design and architecture firm based in Vancouver, Milan, and Berlin. His work explores materiality and balance, his social practice strives for positive growth, and the breaking of barriers within the global glass community by being an ambassador and facilitator of the next generation of glass artists.
His October residency at Museum of Glass will be an exciting new experiment, inspired by interplay of color and opacity in the medium of glass. Macdonell will collaborate with local neon artists to create glass sculptures that combine traditional glassblowing techniques with electrifying elements.
