Luke Stone is an artist and maker that grew up in a many spaces, perhaps for this reason he is fascinated by the journey, process and narrative arch. Mr. Stone began his artistic training and research at the Toledo Museum of Art, the home of the studio glass movement. While enrolled in their intensive programs he practiced photography, metals and found a passion for working with glass.
He received a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University’s Craft and Material studies Department with a concentration in glass and metalsmithing. In his craft practice he is investigating the merger of sculptural flame-worked glass into functional objects, with a focus on creating fantasy inspired creatures from folklore. His work can be found in galleries and tobacconists on the East coast and the Midwest. Currently Luke is an instructor at the Chrysler Museum of Art where he supports the glass studio operations and is expanding his post-bach research.
