HYUNSUNG CHO

Hyunsung Cho (b. 1975, Seoul, Korea) makes delicate, beautifully shaped goblets, glasses and vases in his glassblowing studio in Seoul. Trained in Korea and the U.S., Cho was first introduced to glass while studying at Namseoul University in Cheonan, Korea. He has continued to hone his practice as one of the foremost glassmakers in his native country, and received his second master's degree in glass from Southern Illinois University Carbondale in 2010. Cho's work has been featured in numerous group exhibitions in Korean and American galleries and institutions, including the Glass Island Museum and the Gyeonggi Museum of Modern Art in Korea, among others, and was also honored with a "Best in Show" at BIGG: Breakthrough Ideas in Global Glass sponsored by Steuben Glass.
