Austin Stern: Avarice
This sculpture is by Austin Stern.
Austin Stern began blowing glass at the age of 14 in Palo Alto CA, and has lived and worked in Seattle since 2013. Stern uses the bright and playful colors of the toys and cartoons and of his past to explore mental health and anxiety through a cheerful and humorous lens.
Stern was selected as one of the 100 artists included in New Glass Now, a global survey of contemporary glass at The Corning Museum of Glass that opened in May 2019.
