Eunsuh Choi is the archetypal immigrant’s tale run through the artist’s filter. Choi arrived in the U.S. with a Master’s degree in glass from Kookmin University (Korea), but determined to pursue further glass education, she chose the Rochester Institute of Technology as a place where she could both study English and earn a second MFA degree in glass. Choi’s work has been featured in a number of magazines in the USA, Germany, and Korea, and her artworks are also on permanent collection in the Corning Museum of Glass, the European Museum of Modern Glass, and 9 other world renowned places. Along with 22 years of glass experience, Choi has studio art experience in metal, clay, textiles, and fiber art. Her experience in glass include flameworking, kiln forming (casting, fusing, and slumping), cold working, stained glass, mosaic and glass blowing as well.For details on our COVID-19 policies, class cancellation policy, parking, and more please visit our FAQs.
