One of the country’s iconic glass designers, Wayne Husted, is giving a talk at Berkeley’s Rejuvenation home lighting and furnishing store. Formerly the design director of Blenko Glass Company, Husted has also lived an accomplished career as an independent artist. His stunning glass creations are based in the Bauhaus movement and show off his love of large-scale architectural forms. Husted is well known for his series of lamps, which come in rich colors and soft, fluid forms. Rejuvenation’s can’t-miss event not only includes Husted discussing his design philosophy and years of making glass furnishings and sculptures, but it also will showcase a collection of his original pieces and unveil his new work. August 17 at 4pm, 1717-D 4th Street.
