Biography: Caitlin Hyde

Caitlin Hyde
Caitlin Hyde
Properties of Glass Programs Team Leader

Caitlin Hyde lives in Corning, NY, and has been making flameworked glass beads and small sculpture since 1996. She teaches workshops at The Corning Museum of Glass and across the country. Hyde’s background in illustration, textile design, and love of high contrast, rhythmic pattern are evident in her pictorial beads and assembled figurative work. “The desire to create and tell stories binds us together across time and space and culture,” says Hyde. “So I make beads about stories; not always overt in their meaning, but with the implication of narrative.”
