In today’s podcast we have Leo Tecosky. With a BA in Fine Art from Alfred University and an MFA from The School of Visual Arts in Manhattan, Tecosky teaches at studios and schools in Brooklyn, nationally and internationally. Leo lives and works in Brooklyn, NY blowing glass and maintaining a studio practice.
Tecosky creates sculpture and
installation using found and constructed elements. He
has a diverse range of glassmaking technique be it sharp and
precise hot-sculpted arrows, crisp and clean collage of screen
printed Islamic and architectural patterns, and light bending
graffiti with neon.
I was fortunate to record this episode with him at the end of teaching a summer Intensive at the Pittsburgh Glass Center. We had touch base on instagram prior to meeting, and I’ve been itching to seed the potential for exploration with plasma in his hot sculpted shapes. Recorded shortly after Ed Blow and Glow class we discuss what techniques we would employ to make his shape work for plasma.
