Lauren Hunt is an artist and educator located in Austin, Texas. She began her focus in glass at Virginia Commonwealth University where she received her BFA. After graduating, she moved to Corning, NY and began a 7 year career working for the Corning Museum of Glass Hot Glass Show and their Blow Glass At Sea Program. Hunt's glass reflects the inspiration from the years of travel she experienced while performing on board Celebrity Cruise Ships. Her work, now, focuses on color and form as she strives to create a balanced, well crafted object.
The ultimate compliment to a craftsperson is actually using the object they've created. I do create unique, one of a kind pieces, but truly get fulfillment from knowing people who use my glass ware as the preferred, practical choice in their home. Whether it's a technically crafted vase, platter, or sculptural element, it means the world to me to know that my work serves a purpose.
