Full Bio

Chris Ross is a Pittsburgh resident who grew up in Knoxville, a small neighborhood situated between Beltzhoover and the South Side. As a high school student, Chris took part in the SiO2 program with PGC. Glassblowing became his obsession, which turned into a pursuit of exploring the craft and creating 3D forms. After receiving his BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art, Chris took part in several opportunities from the Tech Apprenticeship with PGC to working in lighting design and fabrication in Brooklyn, NY. Now he finds harmony in stone carving alongside glass coldworking to create abstract 3D forms, combining experiences he’s gained throughout his career as an instructor and fabricator.
