Christa Westbrook

Christa Westbrook was fortunate to discover the thrill of working with hot molten glass at the age of 16 in Liberal, Kansas. In 2012, she graduated with a BFA from Emporia State University, where she studied glass under Patrick Martin and Roberta Eichenberg, as well as many guest glass artists who visited the campus
