Born in 1982 in Moline, Illinois, Dorie Guthrie was first exposed to the medium when she stumbled upon a small glass studio in her hometown. Since graduating from Illinois State University in 2008, Guthrie has continued her studies, being awarded scholarships, at Corning Museum of Glass, Penland School of Craft, and Pittsburgh Glass Center where she furthered her technique. Over the last five years Dorie worked on staff at the Pilchuck Glass School, and also has been a teacher’s assistant at Corning Museum of Glass, Pilchuck, and Pittsburgh Glass Center. Miss Guthrie was selected to demonstrate flameworking at the 2013 Glass Art Society Conference in Toledo, Ohio. Dorie recently taught kilncasting, flameworking, fusing, and imagery techniques at Brazee Street Studio, a Bullseye Resource Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.

I learned so much in this kiln casting class! The atmosphere was great and Dorie was a wonderful teacher. I would recommend going into the class with ideas, but also an open mind. The class is much more enjoyable and rewarding if you go into it wanting to experiment and learn techniques rather than trying to create polished gallery-ready pieces.
