Benjamin Wright, GAS Student Representative, graduated from Dartmouth College in 1998 with a Bachelors degree in Environmental and Evolutionary Biology. Shortly thereafter, he discovered hot glass and thus ended his career as a biologist. After a year working as an assistant in several New England studios, he moved to Tennessee to enroll in Curtiss Brock's program at the Appalachian Center for Crafts, where he is currently pursuing a BFA. In the last year, Ben has been a Niche finalist and has received scholarships from GAS and Penland School of Crafts.
