To say CCA alumnus Kaii Tu (BFA Individualized Major 2012) is on the right path toward career success is probably the understatement of the year. That's because Tu, who graduated with high distinction, was recently awarded a 2012 Windgate Fellowship by UNC Asheville’s Center for Craft, Creativity and Design (CCCD).
The $15,000 fellowship, for which more than 120 universities across the United States nominate two graduating seniors with exemplary skill in craft, is one of the largest awards in art and design in the nation.
Tu graduated from Harvard University summa cum laude with a degree in Visual and Environmental Studies, but he's also one of the youngest persons to reach the level of brand manager at Procter & Gamble, his employer from 2005 to 2009 in Cincinnati, where he worked in product design, brand architecture, and business management.

The other week I had the opportunity to visit Slow Burn Glass, the West Oakland studio of artist Bryan Goldenberg. He's been blowing glass since 1995, and after graduating from the California College of the Arts in 2002 and with experience around the country and the world, he created the Slow Burn studio in 2006.

Students work with Don Friedlich
CCA visiting artist Don Friedlich participated as an artist in residence in spring 2012. He had been invited on behalf of the college's Glass and Jewelry / Metal Arts Programs. While at CCA Friedlich experimented with glass processes and worked directly with students.
Metal arts and glass are ancient mediums, and while Friedlich is a craftsman in the traditional sense, he also incorporates new industrial technologies in his work.

Artist in Resident
Although metal arts and glass are ancient arts, Friedlich applies new and innovative industrial technologies in his work. While at CCA Friedlich brought CNC-milled graphite molds into the Hot Shop where Glass 2 students helped him fill them with hot glass. He also brought in 3D-printed vitrious objects, which he fired enamel colors onto, and he CNC-milled a plaster blow mold using the CCA shops.
