A graduate of Hartwick College, Chris spent several years as an apprentice in a glass studio in Western Massachusetts and later working as a gaffer for Steuben glass here in Corning. Of glass, he says “I thrive on the constant attention it demands to push the boundary between fluid and solid state."
