Shanghi glass artist Lu Chi visited the Washington Glass School, talking about glass techniques and opportunities to exhibit overseas.

A pioneer of Chinese contemporary glass art, Lu Chi received the very first MFA degree in glass in China from Tsinghua University in Beijing in 2003. She worked as a university teacher in Shanghai for four years and continued her extracurricular education at the Studio of Corning Museum of Glass in New York in 2006 and 2007.

Her works were shown at distinguished venues and international exhibitions such as Glass Art Society 2007 Live Auction in Pittsburgh, “Glass Now 2008” in Philadelphia and a group exhibition in Leo Kaplan and New York. Lu’s work will be shown at SOFA Chicago in November, at Navy Pier.

Lu’s kilncast glass sculptures are complex forms created in clay and produced using the “lost wax’ process. Her largest works are more than 1 meter high. It takes an average of three months to finish one sculpture. Each sculpture can weigh up to 40 kilograms.
