Deb Czeresko, the winner of the Netflix series Blown Away, has begun her residency at the Corning Museum of Glass.
“It’s just thrilling to me,” Czeresko explained.
Czeresko won season one of the series, beating out nine competitors from around the world in the first of its kind glassblowing competition. Part of her $60,000 prize package included a residency at the Museum of Glass.
Members of the CMOG team were also featured on the show as judges and assistants.
As part of her residency, Czeresko will be participating in demonstrations with her team at the Museum. This month, these demonstrations took place today and will continue tomorrow. Then she will return October 1-6 and then again October 14-18. During these demonstrations, Czeresko will be working on a chandelier based on a car from the ’60s.
Tickets for the museum are $17 and kids 17 and under are free.
