Sunday Lecture Series: Tanner Weiss

November 10 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us in the garden for our Sunday lecture series 12-4pm

Growing up along the California coast during my adolescence, I was deeply immersed in the ever-shifting rhythms of the ocean. Raised by my Colombian mother in a household celebrating my dual heritage, I found profound inspiration in the intricate patterns formed by waterways. My artistic endeavors are a reflection of these ubiquitous water patterns, visually captured through the meticulous craft of glass cane and coldworking techniques. Each piece I create serves as a sculptural homage to the ebb and flow of coastal tides. Motivated by the transformative power of waves and currents, I am captivated by their gradual yet relentless shaping of landscapes over time. It is this natural phenomenon of continuous sculpting that fuels my artistic vision, which seeks to translate the essence of water currents into tangible form. Through the deliberate placement of linear cane and textural elements, my art endeavors to map the perpetual movement and fluidity of water, offering my own interpretation of this mesmerizing force of nature.

Tanner Weiss was born and raised along the coast of Hermosa Beach, California. Weiss grew up in a household full of art. His Columbian mother instilled a love of art and helped foster his love of glass by sending him to a highschool that taught glassblowing. It was here that Weiss found his true love of art making. Weiss’s work continued to develop at Pilchuck Glass School during the summer workshops as a student, teaching assistant and cold shop coordinator. In 2017, Weiss made Seattle his home and has continued working as a freelance glass artist. Weiss has worked with artists such as Nancy Callan, Janusz Pozniak, Preston Singletary, Martin Blank, and more. In the fall of 2021 Weiss worked as an assistant to Jen Elek and Jeremy Bert during their neon and glassblowing concentration at Penland School of Crafts. As an artist pursuing his own work, Weiss has developed his love of glass through aquatic and environmental inspirations found in California and the Pacific Northwest.
