Emma Bourke, an award-winning glass artist who is visiting BARN from her native Ireland, will demonstrate her technique as part of the Glass Studio's open studio on Aug. 9. 

She graduated with honors in craft design glass and received her master's degree in fine arts from the University of Sunderland in 2013. Her work is in the collections of the National Museum of Ireland, the Corning Museum of Glass, and on permanent public display later this year in the offices of Maurice Ward Art Handling in Dublin.

Themes of botanical mythology and ethnobotany inform her craft in glass and metal. Each piece becomes a meditation on how culture is shaped by the natural environment as native plants have been employed in a range of disciplines from creating structures to developing medicines for healing.

You can see her work here:


This is free, but registration is required because the number of people who can be in the studio is limited.
