Description:

Pilchuck, A Dance with Fire


Since being founded by iconic figure Dale Chihuly and a few art school friends in 1971 the Pilchuck Glass School has been pushing the limits of a medium that can last centuries or shatter in an instant. Through the story of this small and highly influential school in the Pacific Northwest Pilchuck: A Dance with Fire identifies the remarkable convergence of visionary individuals, regional culture and fortunate timing to explain how and why Pilchuck and the studio glass movement has blossomed.  The film will be followed by a Q&A with artist Patrick Blythe.
