Biography: Chris Lydon

Chris Lydon

Philadelphia-based artist Christopher Lydon creates organically-inspired sculptural and vessel forms and works with intense color contrasts that reference street art and anime.

Lydon received his BFA from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia in 1999. He continued his post-collegiate education at Pilchuck as a teaching assistant and artist assistant, studied with Italian maestros Pino Signoretto and Elio Quarisa, both of whom he credits as influences in his development as a glass artist. In 2001, he received a residency at The Studio of the Corning Museum of Glass.

Lydon teaches glassblowing and hot sculpture in Philadelphia and nationally in such studios as The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass and the Pittsburgh Glass Center. His individual body of work is exhibited widely on a national level.
