    The Sandwich Glass Museum Special Dispaly in the Contemporary Gallery

    For over 18 years master glassblowers David McDermott and his wife Yukimi Matsumoto and their team have been producing magnificent glass that has been displayed in hundreds of galleries across the country, as well as the Metropolitan Musem of Art in New York City, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Sandwich Glass Museum.

    The tight-knit team, that also includes Isabel Green and Peter Waechter, produces distinctive glass in a collaborative and synchronized way.  Born in McDermott's style is the disciplined "Scottish glassblowing technique" learned at a young age by master glassblower Robert Mason.  Watchng the studio at work it is clear that, thanks to a thorough understanding of the rudimentary skills of glassblowing, each piece will likely meet the stands of the team.

    As noted by Cape Cod Life "each artst has a particular strength.  McDermott does form. Matsmoto is a master of color.  Green creates sculptural work.  The studio's production includes stemware, decorative vases and sculptural pieces."  You will be enthralled with the astonishing colors and unique elements that make a McDermott piece.  

    A truly remarkable display of talent.
