Square portrait of Katherine Gray

Katherine Gray is a Los Angeles-based glass artist whose work ranges from blown glass to elaborate installations of found glass. She was elected into the College of Fellows in 2020.

Gray's immersive work draws on rich traditions of glass blowing, fearless experimentation, and a fascination with glass as both a visual and experiential encounter. She is currently a professor at California State University San Bernardino and can be seen in the Netflix series Blown Away as the resident evaluator. In 2017, she received the Libenský | Brychtová Award from the Pilchuck Glass School for her artistic and educational contributions to the field.

Gray studied at the Ontario College of Art and received her MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. She has had recent solo shows at Craft Contemporary and the Toledo Museum of Art. Her work can be found in the collections of the Corning Museum of Glass, the Toledo Museum of Art, and the Tacoma Museum of Glass, among others. Her work has been reviewed in New York Observer, Artforum, LA Times, and the New York Times design magazine.
