Christine Barney

Born and raised near Corning, New York, my life has been anchored by glass. With glass as the leitmotif, 30 years have gone by, with 10 years learning technique as a glassblower, then a 15 year involvement with hot-formed sculpture, with a major shift to cast glass several years ago. I express my sculpture in streamlined forms that reference the forces of nature and investigate formal concepts of sculpture; positive and negative space, line, volume and mass. My work has been featured in numerous publications, including The New York Times,The Washington Post,and The New Glass Review. My work is in the permanent collections of The Corning Musuem of Glass, The Museum of American Glass, Tropicana Products, Centeon Pharmaceutical and Merck & Co. I have received two fellowships from the Creative Glass Center at Wheaton Arts and a visual artist fellowship grant from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
