Glass: Stephen Rolfe Powell

Stephen Rolfe Powell is a master of the dramatic process of combining tiny colored glass beads with fire, then blowing and shaping the hot glass into beautiful works of art. This profile takes students into his hot-glass studio at Centre College in Danville, where he demonstrates the process and talks about the physicality and team aspect of this art form.
