Presentation by Eddie Bernard, Founder of Wet Dog

- Location: Room C, Binns Merrill Hall
(6:00 PM - 7:30 PM)
Sponsored By: Sculpture and Dimensional Studies

From an early age Eddie Bernard enjoyed working with his hands and figuring out how things are put together. In 1988, at the age of 15, Eddie began working for Craig McCullen making stained glass panels. At 17 years old, he began apprenticing Paulo Dufour in the stained glass trade, and it was Paulo who introduced Eddie to hot glass.

This early interest in glass lead him to School of American Crafts at Rochester Institute of Technology to study glass blowing. While there he had the opportunity to build his first furnace, and a love affair with building equipment was born. After graduating with a BFA in glass in the spring of 1996, Eddie went to the Corning Museum to help install The Studio of the Corning Museum of Glass. He was offered the job as the first Corning Glass studio technician and also took on the role of stained glass program founder and instructor.

Eddie moved back to Louisiana later that same year and founded Wet Dog Glass, LLC, now the pre-eminent glass blowing equipment manufacturer in the United States.
