Chris Rochelle

Chris Rochelle enjoys the constant, steady focus that forming glass demands. A common thread in his work is creating tight forms with clean edges and lines, which he was trained to do throughout his time as a production glassmaker.

Watch as Hot Glass Demo Team gaffer Chris Rochelle and Curator of Ancient Glass Katherine Larson, PhD explore the topic of wineglasses through the ages. 
Alongside Larson's curatorial perspective, Rochelle will share his glassmaking expertise in creating complex goblets meant for wine and explain how this hand-working process differs from mechanized production of wine glasses.  

Join us for our summer live stream demo series highlighting objects and themes from our new exhibit, Fire and Vine: The Story of Glass and Wine.

In context of this exhibition, curators from The Corning Museum of Glass present historical perspectives on the glassmakers’ creations.
