Back in November 2019, when things were more normal than we appreciated at the time, George Averbeck got a special visit from Canadian filmmaker, Brandy Yanchyk. Brandy was making a travel documentary series which not only explored unique experiences across the United States, but also highlighted local crafts and artists. George welcomed Brandy into his studio to help him make one of his signature glass "moon balls" celebrating the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo moon landing - an iconic part of Flagstaff's history.
The series Seeing the USA with Brandy Yanchyk, is out now and we're happy to share her experience blowing glass with George! See how a moon ball is created and what it takes to work molten glass into a beautiful piece of art. And if you enjoy this section, check out the whole Seeing the USA series on Amazon Prime or on your local PBS station!
