Bio:
Ed Francis shares his skill and love of glass art through TCC’s Glass Art program and with outreach demonstrations with his portable hot-glass studio. An award-winning artist, he has taught at renowned glass-making centers including Rochester Institute of Technology and Pilchuck Glass School, and launched the glass program at the Indianapolis Art Center. At TCC since 2005, Francis has expanded the Studio Glass program, which offers traditional glass blowing with molten glass along with the study of glass as art, exploring both sculptural and functional forms. Francis holds a B.S. in fine and applied arts from Southern Connecticut State University and a M.F.A. with specialization in glass from Kent State University. He was awarded the prestigious Creative Glass Center of America Fellowship at Wheaton Village and has participated in numerous invitational group and solo exhibitions for the past 20 years.
