Ed Pennebaker is FOCC speaker Sunday

Posted By on Wed, Mar 5, 2014 at 9:38 AM


Glass artist Ed Pennebaker, who creates glass chandeliers, sconces and sculpture in his Red Fern Glass Studio near Ozark, will be the speaker at Sunday's Friends of Contemporary Crafts "Conversation With" event at the Arkansas Arts Center.

Pennebaker, who was awarded an Individual Artist Fellowship by the Arkansas Arts Council in 2013, will speak at 5 p.m. and there will be a reception afterward. There's a $5 charge for members of FOCC and $10 for non-members.

From Pennebaker's website:

I see my chandeliers and lighting belonging to a contemporary line of the "decorative arts" that developed from the arts and crafts movement where craftsmanship is of the utmost importance. Striving for the "perfect object" is the goal of the craftsman/designer and working directly with the materials at hand provides the greatest satisfaction for me.
