Christopher Watts' conceptually driven glass sculpture focuses on contemporary issues, such as perceived and agreed value, and the concealed meaning behind a material's history. He uses the natural beauty of the material as an invitation for viewers to interpret the narratives that are at the heart of his work. Watts has been working with glass since 1987 and established Watts Hot Glass, which he runs with his wife Sarah. In 2007, Watts designed a glass program for Boston University through Diablo Glass School, which he continues to teach. The class challenges students to combine glassmaking techniques with their individual interests in the pursuit of developing personal artistic languages. In addition, he has been a faculty member at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design since 2002. He has taught at numerous schools and universities, including MIT, Salem State University, and Sunderland University. He has collaborated with many of today's notable glass and multi-media artists.
