Chris Rochelle: Museum Gaffer

Chris Rochelle’s path as a glass artist traces back to Hartwick College, where he studied sculpture and painting. The school’s small glass program gave him his first taste of working with this unique medium. Upon graduation, he apprenticed in a studio in western Massachusetts. For a decade he did production work, including spending several years as a gaffer at the Steuben Glass factory in Corning, New York.
