Join us as we explore the Japanese flameworking scene. Roger Parramore shares with us how the Japanese aesthetic has influenced his work. Try as he might, efforts to resist the artistic flavor of the Far East proved futile! Enjoy this cultural immersion, and his articulate & candid observations on the joys & dangers of absorbing and adapting the artistic imagery of a foreign land. Find out about the Osaka University of Art, and it's world class flameworking program....the first program of it's kind, anywhere! Look for excerpts of this podcast in the Fall, 2009 issue of Profitable Glass Quarterly, as well as a downloadable PDF version soon to be available at www.profitableglass.com.
