Created by FIA Art School Glass Programs Manager Brent Swanson, Sport Coat is a large-scale interpretation on the latest work from his Whisper series. A modern take on a traditional coat of arms, the piece represents the custom of one party granting such heraldry to another. With the passing of Sport Coat to one lucky attendee of The PARTY, the recipient joins a lineage that moves from the glass community through the Flint Institute of Arts to them.
With over a decade of experience, Michigan native Brent Swanson is a consummate glass artist. Swanson has worked across the world in glass studios from Detroit to South Korea. His passionate, avant-garde style has been featured in galleries across the country and his work contains both hand-sculpted and blown glass wares.
