Blown Away Premieres July 12

On July 12, Netflix will launch Blown Away, the first-ever competition show featuring glass in the starring role. The 10-episode series will bring the art of glassblowing to a global audience, as the competition pushes the contestants to creative extremes in search of the "Best in Blow." The show follows a group of 10 highly skilled glass artists from North America who have a limited time to fabricate works of art that are assessed by a panel of expert judges. One artist is eliminated in each 30-minute episode until a winner is announced in the tenth and final episode. The winner of Blown Away will be awarded a prize package valued at $60,000, which includes a week-long guest artist appearance at the Corning Museum of Glass (CMoG) hot shop (October 14-18) where he or she will participate in demonstrations for the public.

Throughout the summer, CMoG is displaying the exhibit Blown Away: Glassblowing Comes to Netflix, which tells the story of the museum's involvement in the project. Visitors can see work created on the show by each competitor and watch a behind-the-scenes documentary with interviews conducted on the set and footage captured of the museum's Hot Glass Demo Team taking part in the finale.
