Episode 170- Bandhu Scott Dunham 

Bandhu and I sit down in the virtual studio and discuss many topics pertaining to glass and his career.  Find out what sparked his initial interest in glass and what continues to motivate  him to continue working with this amazing medium of glass for the last 42 years.


Born in Dayton, Ohio, in 1959, Bandhu Dunham began to teach himself lampwork/flamework technique in 1975, while still in high school. Now an internationally respected glass artist, author and teacher, his work is in the permanent collections of numerous museums in the US and abroad, including the Corning Museum of Glass, The Museum of Arts and Design, Museum für Glaskunst (Germany), Niijima Glass Art Center (Japan), and Osaka University of Arts.
Bandhu’s Contemporary Lampworking books are the authoritative, standard instructional texts in his field. He regularly teaches workshops at craft schools and private studios around the United States and internationally. In 2010 he was Visiting Foreign Instructor at Osaka University of Arts in Osaka, Japan. In 2012, Bandhu was a presenter and Masterclass leader at the International Festival of Glass in Stourbridge, England. In 2013 he was a presenter and teacher at the international Ausglass Conference in Australia, and First Place winner in the CHAMPS Glass Games in Las Vegas.

We Give Bugs A Second Life As Art!

Cherry Glass is a family-owned glassblowing business in Northern Minnesota. We are a group of artists that add real insects to our art by electroforming them in copper and applying them onto our glass pieces. We create magnifiicent pieces using organic materials. We have three months of summer and collect bugs as they die off. The rest are shipped to us from collectors and friends! We also incorporate crystals, stones, and Brazilian agate slabs in our work and connect everything together with different color patinas. We Give Bugs A Second Life As Art!
We have electroformed the following organic material:
Butterflies
Dragonflies
Spiders
Scorpions
Snakes
Bats
Praying Mantis
Hornets
Cicadas
House Flies
Flowers
Stones
Bones
Starfish
Sea Horse
Shells
Sea Fan
Scot started blowing glass in 2002. After a four year apprenticeship under Andy G. , Scot started Cherry Glass in 2006, and in 2012 his mother, Linda Bennett started collaborating with electroforming real bugs, stones, and working with patinas with his pieces. Scot's wife Ryan, and Travis Andrews of Oxbow Art Effects also contribute there sculpting and artwork.
