Craft in America
1st May 2016
In May 2016 the PBS show “Craft in America” filmed at the Preston Singletary Glass Studio in Seattle, WA. The “Craft in America” crew got a special look at the art glass process, interviewed Curator Miranda Belarde-Lewis about Tlingit culture and received greater insight from Preston Singletary on his art. A distinct focus was given to pieces that will be featured in the “Raven and the Box of Daylight” solo exhibition at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, WA to be presented in 2018.
Craft in America’s mission includes:
“…To document and advance original handcrafted work through programs in all media, accessible to all. We are dedicated to the exploration, preservation and celebration of craft, the work of the hand, and their impact on our nation’s cultural heritage.”
Preston Singletary will be included in the “Nature “episode of “Craft in America”, which is currently in production and will air within the next few months. Visit the “Craft in America” website to explore past episodes, featured artists and to learn more about this award-winning series.
