In conjunction with the Climate Awakening exhibition at Contemporary Craft, Adrien was invited to come to Pittsburgh for three weeks leading up to the show to make a new series of collaborative work with two local craft artists - Julian Maturino, a glass blower, and Daniel Brockett, a willow weaver who grows his own willow at Foggy Blossom Farm. The artwork is inspired by the Allegheny River and is being created as a response to Pittsburgh's historical significance as the geographic epicenter of Industrialization in America.

In this workshop, students design and make a unique sculptural lamp using wood and other translucent materials. Students gain experience using a range of woodworking tools and techniques to carve, shape, and assemble materials into a functioning hanging pendant or table lamp. There is an emphasis on experimentation with shadow play, piercing, surface patterns, texturing, and luminosity. Each student gains experience with woodworking machines, hand tools, carving methods, and lamp assembly, and will create a working sculptural wood lamp to take home.
