In the latest issue of the American Glass Guild newsletter, I created a page devoted to the involvement by stained glass artist Nancy Nicholson in something called "The Art of Craftsmanship Revisited: New York". There were only a few details about the program when I put that together. Well, now there is an official The Art of Craftsmanship Revisited: New York website, from Parsons and LVMH. The most interesting part to me are all the videos, including these two (plus 1) that are stained glass related.
Video on 'Stained Glass Artist' Nancy Nicholson. FYI: I've known Nancy from way back when, in the Boston days we worked shoulder to shoulder... 25 years ago now.
I also found (on vimeo) this simple 55 second shot of Nancy's workspace panning over to see her working on the LVMH design. As much as I like the official edited piece on Nancy, I would love to see more of this.
This is the video on 'Stained Glass Restorer' Thomas Venturella. I have met Tom, and I even visited his studio once, though it was almost 20 years ago.
Artwork from The Art of Craftsmanship Revisited: New York, including Nancy's panel, is on display at Governor's Island, New York, on Saturdays and Sundays, June 5 - June 27, 11 AM - 5 PM.
