I AM WATER Glass Sculpture
“Out of all environmental and social issues, the most important issue of our time is water.” — Tanja Andrejasic Wechsler
Date: Saturday, October 8, 2022
Time: 10am to 5pm
Location: Museum of Glass Hot Shop Amphitheater 1801 Dock St, Tacoma, WA 98402
Join us as up to five of the top glass blowers assemble at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington to create I AM WATER, a human-sized water drop made solely from glass. Scheduled in the museum’s signature 90-foot cone Hot Shop Amphitheater, watch as the artists manipulate the non-toxic, natural material into a first-of-its-kind, large-scale, free-blown, glass sculpture that mimics the aerodynamic shape of a water drop.
Conceived by water activist and designer Tanja Andrejasic Wechsler, I AM WATER is a bold move to raise awareness of water by displaying the purity of its form and calling for the consideration and respect of water and its powerful life-giving force. The sculpture represents water speaking and asking to be clean so it can support Life as it’s meant to be, restore nature’s original blueprint and be available for all. Considering the devastating damages to water and the search for better solutions that protect our environment, this incredibly unique sculpture will set the stage for an innovative approach to the water crisis that uses public space and product design to educate the public, inspire a new mindset and practices, and build a better human relationship with water.
Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness the creation of this spectacular art piece and exquisite organic design.
