Chris Clarke

Board Member

Chris Clarke has been the Director of Studios and Technology at the Pittsburgh Glass Center since it opened in October 2001. He is responsible for the management, usage, maintenance, and improvements of the PGC facility and its technology, including computer and phone systems, HVAC, and all studios—plus two 1,000 lb. furnaces, eight glory holes, and more than 30 kilns. He earned his BFA in sculpture from Massachusetts College of Art in Boston and an MFA in glass from Kent State University in Ohio. He received the Creative Glass Center of America fellowship in 2000. He has worked as an artist, metal fabricator, and craftsman for 15+ years, and his work has been exhibited at museums and galleries across the country. When not in the PGC studios, Clarke can be found either restoring his 1910 Arts and Crafts home or fly fishing in Pennsylvania’s beautiful streams.

Chris joined the Glass Art Society Board in June 2011.
