Chris Giordano

Chris Giordano has been working with glass since 2006, having studied Furnace Glassblowing at Franklin Pierce University in New Hampshire. Since then, Giordano has worked with artists from all over the world, as well as in studios throughout the United States.

His work reflects techniques that are traditional to the island of Murano, Italy–including the use of both cane and murrine. Many of his works also include glass cutting patterns called Batutto–a technique that is also from Venice.

Giordano's works have been shown in a variety of venues including The Studio at The Corning Museum of Glass, Gilford Art Center, Brooklyn Waterfronts Artists Coalition, The Arts Council of The Southern Finger Lakes, and 171 Cedar Arts Center. His work is also available for sale in The Shops at The Corning Museum of Glass. Currently, Giordano creates works of his own as an independent artist under GioStudio Glass in Corning, New York.
