The Panelists

moderator: Tyler Kimball a glass artist working in the field of public glass installation and fine art in Kansas City Missouri. He selected the artists for this show based on their ability to use glass in unconventional methods, pushing limits and creating work that bends perceptions and pushes viewers into undiscovered realms and identities.


Kate Clements constructs delicate and ornate large scale paintings and installations comprised of kiln fused glass panels.  The wafer-thin panels reference naturalistic designs and floral motifs that she uses to explore ideas of beauty, taste, and impermanence. Clements received an MFA in Glass from the Tyler School of Art & Architecture in Philadelphia and a BFA in Painting and Art History from the Kansas City Art Institute.  Her work has been exhibited at the Bellevue Arts Museum (WA), Houston Center of Contemporary Craft (TX), Hunterdon Art Museum (NJ), Philadelphia Art Alliance (PA), Urban Glass (NYC), and S12 Gallery (Norway.) She has been awarded residencies at Studios Inc and the Charlotte Street Foundation in Kansas City, the Museum of Arts & Design in New York City, Pilchuck Glass School, and S12 Gallery in Bergen, Norway.

Dorie Guthrie. Born in 1982 in Moline, Illinois, Dorie Guthrie was first exposed to the medium when she stumbled upon a small glass studio in her hometown. Guthrie has continued her studies since graduating from Illinois State University in 2008. She was awarded scholarships at the Corning Museum of Glass, Penland School of Craft, and Pittsburgh Glass Center, where she furthered her technique. Over the last twelve years, Dorie has worked on staff at the Pilchuck Glass School and has been a teacher’s assistant at Bild-Werk, Corning Museum of Glass, Pilchuck, and Pittsburgh Glass Center. Ms Guthrie was selected to demonstrate flameworking at the 2013 Glass Art Society Conference in Toledo, Ohio. She was featured in the Winter 2019 of GLASHAUS magazine and selected for New Glass Review 42. Before uprooting to Brooklyn, NY, Dorie worked at Bullseye Resource Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. She teaches kiln casting, flameworking, fusing, and imagery techniques at UrbanGlass and is the Co-Founder of Shiny Sparkle Studio LLC, specializing in kiln-formed fabrication and education.

Erica Rosenfeld lives and works in Brooklyn, NY and has an art, design and teaching practice. She uses glass, found objects, food and mixed media to create sculptures, installations, performances and jewelry. While embracing the cultural histories of glassmaking, crafting, and cooking; Erica’s artwork celebrates community-centric, obsessive, labor-intensive ritual. Her hybrid artistic practice has centered on the sculptural and social aspects of glass making, food making, and performance. Her art practice investigates themes of time perception, mass culture, conformity, nostalgia, fear and temporarily. Erica is also a founding member of The Burnt Asphalt Family, an artists’ collective with the mission to create community-centric art that meets somewhere at the crossroads between art, craft and design. Their work is a hybrid of a dinner party, performance, a happening and interactive installation. The family has performed throughout the United States at various Museums and Universities. Her own work is held in private and public collections nationally and has been featured in exhibitions at the Museum of Arts and Design, Kentucky Museum of Art, Racine Art Museum, Museum of American Glass and the John Michael Kohler Arts Center. Her work is included in the collections of the Museum of Arts and Design, The Essex Peabody Museum, The Toledo Museum of Art, and The Museum of American Glass. Erica also has been featured in various publications including The New York Times, Glass Magazine, New York Magazine, Art News, Art Jewelry Forum and American Craft. She has also taught at various Universities, Arts Organizations and Museums throughout the United State and Europe.
