New Artist Alert!

📣Gio Studio Glass is now available at Handwork. Each unique piece from Gio Studio is crafted in Corning NY by artist Chris Giordano. We have a great selection of fun vases, wine cups, tumblers, and paperweights, perfect for gifting this holiday season!
Chris has been working with glass since 2006, having studied Furnace glassblowing at Franklin Pierce University in New Hampshire. Since then, Chris has worked in several studios around the country and creates works of his own as an independent artist under GioStudio Glass.
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. Currently, Chris is the Studio Assistant at The Studio at The Corning Museum of Glass. His 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.
