About the Centerpiece Project

Pilchuck Glass School invites artists and designers to submit proposals for the 2014 Centerpiece Project.  The winning design will be created by a volunteer production team on Pilchuck’s Stanwood, Washington campus April 30–May 16, 2014, coinciding Pilchuck’s Spring Tours, and showcased at Pilchuck’s Annual Auction Gala, one of Seattle’s premier fundraising events. As the auction celebrates it 36th year, Pilchuck looks back on outstanding centerpiece designs by renowned artists representing the creative spirit of Pilchuck and high quality contemporary glass art that is represented at the annual auction.
