About the teacher
Eunsuh Choi is the archetypal immigrant’s tale run through the artist’s filter. Choi arrived in the U.S. having already completed a master’s degree in glass from Kookmin University (Korea), but was determined to pursue further glass education. She chose the Rochester Institute of Technology as a place where she could study both English and earn a second MFA degree in glass. She is a portrait artist, whose flameworked pieces are personal narratives, portraits of her own moments of growth. Eunsuh also participated in several glass classes from Corning Museum of Glass and an online architectural course from Harvard University Graduate School of Designs. Choi’s work has been featured in a number of magazines in the USA, UK, Germany, and Korea, and her artworks are also on permanent collection in the Corning Museum of Glass, the European Museum of Modern Glass, and other world-renowned organizations. Choi has been working glass for over 22 years and has a solid studio art experience in metal, clay, textiles, and fiber art. Her experience in glass includes flameworking, kiln forming (casting, fusing, and slumping), cold working, stained glass, mosaic, and glass blowing. Choi joined the Rochester Arc + Flame Center
in 2012 and has taught a wide variety of glass classes since then.
