Beau Anderson Glass Artist

February 28 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Beau Anderson, glass artist, will be the Featured Artist in the Arkansas Craft Gallery Saturday March 9 from 10 to 5. Beau has demonstrated and taught flame working soft glass at the Corning Museum of Glass, Pittsburgh Glass Center, and The International Glass Beadmakers Gathering. In 2003 he developed a revolutionary new bead release technique, called Liquid Core, using a tungsten mandrel.

Beau has had the honor of installing studios and demonstrating in France, Ireland, Switzerland, Spain, and Northern India in the Tibetan home of the Dahli Lama, as well as Stone County and North Little Rock.

He has been featured in Ornament Magazine, Bead and Button magazine, in Cindy Jenkin’s book, Beads of Glass, 1000 Glass Beads by Lark Books, and The History of Beads by Lois Sher Dubin, Abrams Books, among others.

After sharing his love for glass in many workshops he began creating 3 dimensional forms in glass. In 2008 Beau was fortunate enough to take a workshop with the Master in Soft Glass Sculpture, Lucio Bubacco in Murano, Italy. Since then he has been pursuing the elegant fluid expression of Flame worked Soft Glass Sculpture, integrating nature with human forms in frozen motion, communicating their complex interdependence.

Beau and his family members are a part of the Off the Beaten Path Studio Tour Sept. 13-15 at the QMC Building on Sawmill Road, north of Mountain View. As members of the Arkansas Craft Guild, they will again have a booth at Artisans Market on the Square during Arkansas Folk Festival, April 19 and 20 in Mountain View. The Guild was incorporated in 1962 as a for-profit cooperative to market quality handicrafts, and to further develop the skills of these artisans, now headquartered in Mountain View at the Arkansas Craft Gallery, open Tuesday throught Saturday from 10 to 5.

Beau sells kits with instructions in this method, plus beads from the entire family at http://beauxbead.com. Updates on classes and shows can be found on several Facebook profiles of family members.
