Length: 12:43

St. Louis native David Levi (LEE'-vee) has earned an international reputation as a respected glass artist for his large blown glass vessels which have become part of the permanent collections of the Smithsonian and The White House. Levi was on the SIU Carbondale campus last year to demonstrate his skills to students in the Univerisity's School of Art and Design prior to the 2006 International Glass Conference held in St. Louis. Levi's works pay homage to classical forms while giving them a contemporary re-interpretation that is very pleasing to the eye. As our Jak Tichenor discovered, Levi's art involves a high degree of skill gained from years of experience in front of blindingly hot furnaces and an intimate knowledge of the materials and techniques used in this age-old art form.
