During this exclusive reception, attendees will have the chance to mingle with Morgan, see her at work, and hear her fascinating story about how it all began at the Sandwich Glass Museum and how her diagnosis of diabetes has changed her life!

100% of proceeds go to the Sandwich Glass Museum and the American Diabetes Association.

About Morgan Peterson:Morgan Peterson is the winner of Season 4 of the popular Netflix series, Blown Away, a glassblowing competition. During the season, Morgan disclosed that she had been diagnosed with diabetes and benefited from an ADA grant for the initial testing necessary to diagnose the disease. One of Morgan’s winning pieces depicted the struggle of living with diabetes: a glass syringe hanging over three colorful gumdrops.

Morgan graduated from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design and resides in Seattle, where she is a full-time member of Dale Chihuly’s team. She has family in Massachusetts, including two siblings who are doctors, and her mother, a nurse at Brigham and Women's Hospital. Morgan’s love for glassblowing began at age four when she attended her first demo at the Sandwich Glass Museum, sparking a lifelong passion.

When approached by the American Diabetes Association to speak and demonstrate her skills at a fundraising reception, Morgan enthusiastically agreed, expressing her desire to give back. Since winning the Netflix competition, Morgan has worked on pieces for Hollywood and gained fame for her unique style. She has promised to promote the event and the silent auction through her social media channels.

Morgan is also donating one of her Season 4 pieces, “the toaster and the bathtub,” to the silent auction. This event is a great opportunity to spotlight her incredible journey and support two important causes.

Hoogs and Crawford

Contemporary Gallery from July-October 2024  Nathan Hoogs and Elizabath Crawford

"When we opened the studio, we really wanted to diversify, so we did everything. What brought us together was our love of glassblowing and glassworking. We really need each other and depend on each other." (excerpt from The Berkshire Eagle, 10/10/2013)

Nathan Hoogs and Elizabeth Crawford are partners in every sense of the word. Together, they form Hoogs and Crawford Glass, where they blend age-old techniques with contemporary design to create striking, hand-blown glass art.

Both found their fascination and inspiration in glass at an early age and have been working together in various forms, sharing their mutual love of glassblowing and glassworking. Their strong bond and creative synergy are evident when viewing their stunning works and designs.

The Sandwich Glass Museum is honored to share their love of glass art and the profound passion displayed throughout their work.
