In today's podcast, we’ll be talking with Ashlin Williamson of
Fourth State Glass. We'll hear about his journey in plasma, how he
got into using neon gases, latest projects, and his involvement in
The Plasma Art Alliance, an emerging organization of artist using
plasma in their light sculptures.
Ash and I met in 2014 when we took a plasma workshop with Pat Collentine at Pilchuck Glass School. Since then we've kept contact sharing and exchanging ideas and latest projects.

Thank You for listening to the Taming Lightning Podcast. We have
many more guests to come, with future guests returning to expand on
questions, practices, and a variety of subjects. I’d like to thank
Pittsburgh Glass Center for supporting me as well as encouraging me
to pursue this project, and The Plasma Art Alliance, whom many of
my guests are connected through.Keep an eye out for next summer’s
classes at Pittsburgh Glass Center as we work to provide a space
for learning neon and plasma.Also, I’d like to thank Ash for being
a big part of my first steps in my plasma journey. As it was his
help that allowed me to apply plasma light to my graduating
exhibition at Illinois State University.
Feel free to send your questions to this email, share, and comment!
