Use code “HotShop” when making phone reservations with the MFA or at the brunch itself. (This code cannot be used in conjunction with other promotions such as museum memberships.)

About the Artists

Husband and wife, Mr. Petrovic and Ms. Russell-Pool are both graduates of the Cleveland Institute of Art, where the former received the prestigious Agnes Gund Memorial Scholarship. They now work at their glass studio near Essex, Connecticut. They have distinct approaches, but do share ideas.  They have shown their work and presented demonstrations across the country and abroad.

Ms. Russell-Pool takes a “watercolor approach” in creating her flame-worked glass sculpture, and her husband has written that “glass…is just a material. Until it is infused with an idea, a source, or an expression, my job as an artist is not complete.”
