Carina Cheung

Carina Cheung has been working with glass since 2003. Since receiving a BFA in Glass from Rhode Island School of Design, her fascination and deep reverence for glass as a material has propelled her to circumnavigate the world to discover the traditions and unspoken nuances of glassmaking in places such as Murano, Italy and Firozabad, India, during the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Fellowship (2006-2007) and the Fulbright Fellowship (2007-2008) to study in Shandong Province, China. She is a recipient of several fellowships and artist residencies including the Jerry Raphael Metropolitan Contemporary Glass Group Fellowship, the Arctic Circle, the Pilchuck Glass School and the Creative Glass Center of America. Cheung has exhibited internationally, most notably at Robert Lehman Gallery, New York, NY, Ca’Pesaro, The International Gallery of Modern Art, Venice, Italy and In Murano Association, Murano, Italy. Her work will be exhibited this year at Glazenhuis (Belgium) and in the travelling exhibition, Lifeforms 2016. She currently lives and works in New York and Murano, Italy with her partner and frequent collaborator Pino Signoretto since 2009.
