BECon 2017: Artist Story – Jessica Jackson Hutchins L161

In this artist story from BECon 2017, Jessica Jackson Hutchins shares about her philosophy of making, her creative practice, and why she sought a residency at Bullseye Glass.

Hutchins begins by explaining how her sculptures turn everyday objects (especially waste) into locations of shared meaning-making. As such, they also express defiance to commodified culture and hierarchies of perfection. She next sheds light on her creative process and its collaborative, conversational commitments.

During the talk’s second half, Hutchins recalls the chance encounter that inspired her interest in kiln-glass. It was an encounter that changed the tone and trajectory of her art.
