AUTUMN & ART 2018 GRANT THORNTON LLP FEATURED ARTIST

CHRIS MCCARTHY of St. Louis, Missouri




 

 

Chris McCarthy, a glass blower from St. Louis, Mo., has been selected as the Grant Thornton LLP Featured Artist for Autumn & Art at Bradley Fair 2018.

McCarthy’s work is Venetian-inspired, with a concentration of murrini-based designs and a mix of cold-working techniques. After a piece has been blown and cooled back to room temperature, he sand-carves or wheel-carves it to give each its own unique design and texture.

Born in Nashville, Tenn., and raised in Paducah, Ky., McCarthy was introduced to the art of glass blowing while at Washington University in St. Louis. His fascination with fire and desire to create objects by hand drove him to embrace glass blowing as his passion and profession for the past 20 years. The artist and his wife, jeweler Stefany Brown (who is also showing at Autumn & Art at Bradley Fair this year), have a daughter, Ella, and two dogs, Rocky and Momo. He enjoys ice hockey and growing heirloom tomatoes, pumpkins and peppers.

A signed and numbered poster of McCarthy’s Featured Artwork, “Red Vase,” is available for purchase at The Frame Shop in Bradley Fair and will also be sold at Autumn & Art Welcome Centers during the event.
