Casting Calls for Glassmakers on Celebrity Cruises

The Corning Museum of Glass Blow Glass at Sea program.

January 25, 26 & 27, 2010 – Seattle, Washington, Pratt Fine Arts Center

January 28 & 29, 2010 – Tacoma, Washington, M-Space

February 1 & 2, 2010 – Portland, Oregon, Elements Glass

Glassmakers, contact us and sign up to try out for our Blow Glass at Sea program aboard Celebrity Cruises. We’ll be at the West Coast locations, listed above, in January and February.

During the tryout, you will be expected to make a two-gather piece, such as an optic bowl or a handkerchief vase or bowl, using simple or no color. The most successful pieces are blown pieces which show change quickly and be completed in no more than 30 minutes.

Candidates will also be expected to narrate a demonstration (while assisting the gaffer). Candidates will be sent a script prior to the tryout.

Successful tryout candidates will be invited to Corning, NY, to train for three to four weeks before being scheduled for an assignment at sea. If you are chosen for the Blow Glass at Sea program, you will need to pass a drug test and physical examination which are required by Celebrity Cruise Lines. Participants must be able to live onboard a Celebrity Cruises vessel for a minimum of three months.

Send your resume and photos of your work to Debra Sharretts (sharrettsdc@cmog.org) at The Corning Museum of Glass. She will contact you with additional details. You may also reach her at 607-974-8241 for more information. You can also visit http://www.cmog.org/dynamic.aspx?id=10482 for more details about the Blow Glass at Sea program.
