The first season of Blown Away, which premiered in February 2019, was well-received by audiences and critics alike, and praised for its deep appreciation of the art of glassblowing. This season will continue to explore the world of glass while showcasing the remarkable talents of the artists who have mastered the medium.

Blown Away has been a major event for studio glass,” said Koen Vanderstukken, Sheridan’s Head of Glass and series consultant. “The fact that Blown Away is being shown worldwide for over 100 million people has created an awareness with the public. They’re becoming familiar with what it means to blow glass.” 

Since the show’s inception, Sheridan has played an integral role in bringing Blown Away to the small screen. This season, 16 alumni serve as featured assistants.

And grads also played an important role off-screen. Jason Cornish, Sheridan’s Glass Studio Technologist, worked with Vanderstukken ahead of the series premiere to bring together alumni and students to help build the equipment for the show. All the workstations on set were built by alumni who also served as assistants from the show.

Hear directly from Sheridan alumni about their experiences on Blown Away:

“We’re delighted that Sheridan’s Craft & Design grads have been able to play a role in bringing Blown Away to life across four incredible seasons,” said Zaiba Mian, Associate Dean, Material Art and Design at Sheridan. “Beyond spotlighting the incredible art of glass blowing, having the talent of our grads showcased in such a phenomenal way is a testament to the instruction they received as students.”

The fourth season of Blown Away launches on Netflix on March 8.
