The Hot Shop
As was stated previously, Blown Away is a reality show that originates from Canada. That would make Hamilton, Ontario, the location of the filming. It takes roughly an hour to drive from Toronto to this port city located in the southwestern part of Canada. Marblemedia, the production company behind the show, transformed an abandoned warehouse into a hot shop for the ten contestants of the competition and provided each of them with ten kilns to utilize in the process of blowing out glass and creating their artwork.
The largest hot shop in all of North America can be found here. Industry professionals from the Craft and Design Glass Studio at Sheridan College, the Pilchuck Glass School, and the Corning Museum of Glass provided advice and assistance to the producers during the construction of the facility. These professionals also provide advice and assistance to the contestants during each round of the competition.
The viewers of the reality show Blown Away were divided on the decision of who should win the first season of the competition. Deborah Czeresko, the controversial star of the show, emerged victorious in the competition in 2019, taking home the cash prize of $60,000 as well as an artist residency at the Corning Museum of Glass. As a well-known and successful glassblower, Czeresko began her career in 1987 at the New York Experimental Glass Workshop.
She is noted for her skill in the field. Despite this, a significant number of Blown Away supporters voiced their disagreement with the judges’ decision to crown her the victor. They asserted that the reason she was selected wasn’t because she produced work of a high artistic grade, but rather because she conveyed political statements while the play was being performed.
Deborah Czeresko’s work.
She always said that one of her goals in working as a glassblower was to serve as an example for other women who chose to pursue careers that are traditionally dominated by men. She went on to discuss the polar opposites of gender, masculinity and femininity, after stating that the eggs she generated in the season finale were “usually female” due to the fact that they symbolize the ovary of a female.
This was during her discussion of the eggs she had created. As a result of this, viewers of the show accused her of being a TERF, which is an acronym that stands for radical feminist who does not accept transsexuals, and they claimed that the jury was engaging in identity politics.
In addition, Clayton Badger started a campaign for Marblemedia on the website change.org in an effort to overturn Deborah’s victory. He asserted that “Deborah’s paintings typically won because of the message the judges interpreted, and not because she made high-quality art” in their defense.
Many of Deborah’s supporters who signed the petition made comments about her haughtiness and attention-seeking, as well as the feminist discourse she engaged in from the very beginning of the show. These supporters believe that Deborah’s participation in this discourse played a significant role in her ability to win the favor of the judges.
