Toraason Glass -- September 8, 2011

One of OLLI’s most intriguing local favorites was back by popular demand! Nearly 20 OLLI members enjoyed an exclusive, up-close look at local artist Hiram Toraason’s 4,000-square-foot glass blowing studio and gallery.

Hiram, a graduate of Southern Illinois University who apprenticed under William and Katherine Berstein in Celo, North Carolina, demonstrated his techniques of working with 2,000-degree molten glass and created a one-of-a-kind work of art.

He also discussed his artwork at Peoria's Methodist Medical Center, which includes a wall sculpture of 240 pieces of hand-blown glass in the new $11 million Hamilton Boulevard entrance and glass flowers encased within lighted glass columns on the Methodist Foundation donor recognition wall.
