Art Watch Part Two

WHIZ is highlighting another artist who was showcasing her skills at the Zanesville Museum of Art this weekend.

Meet Hannah Rosner, she specializes in torch work and designs all kinds of jewelry and glass work. Rosner said while taking an art class in college, she realized she’d rather make her own glass beads than use premade ones.

"I don’t think I cared at the beginning whether I was any good at it because it was just too much fun and it was more about– some people find going on a roller coaster fun, for me, playing with glass is fun."

Rosner said it truly is addicting trying to see how far you can push it without breaking something or hurting yourself without running out of cash. While the hobby isn’t cheap, she does encourage others to experiment with it.

"Don’t give up because you do get a plateau that you think well I’m never going to get better and then suddenly something happens," she said. "If you enjoy it, continue it don’t let yourself get depressed that you’re in a rut because sooner or later you’re going to get something that’s going to work for you and it’s going to push you farther."

Saturday was the first of four Art Watch events hosted by the museum and sponsored by the PNC Arts Alive Program.
