This sculpture was made for the 2010 GAS Conference in Louisville Kentucky. The theme was Some like it hot!. The GAS Conference is an annual glass conference that is held in a different place across the country each year. This sculpture is an exploding volcano with a silly moose, acrobatic polar bear and 2 devils snowboarding down the lava flows. The name of the piece, Extreme Pyro, has been worked into the hot lava exploding above the volcano.
History: After spending time in Louisville, this beautiful sculpture was donated to the Colorado Project. The Colorado Project was a convention of glass workers from Colorado along with a lampworking demonstration. They auctioned off the sculpture with the proceeds of the auction going to the Colorado Food Bank.
