Professional Info

Curtiss Brock has run the Glass Program at the Appalachian Center for Craft since 1988.  As Associate Professor of Glass he has developed the program to focus on handblown form with a strong emphasis on technical mastery in hotworked and coldworked glass.  Students in the Glass Program receive broad background in historical and contemporary glass, and participate in an active dialogue about the role of glass in the art world today. Curt ensures that his students acquire the proper information and skills to enter and thrive in the world of studio glass.  This emphasis on strong technical knowledge and experience and real-world survival skills sets our glass program apart from all others in academia today.   

Curt has a BA from Goddard College and an MFA in Sculpture from University of Illinois, Champaign.  His work is featured in over 25 museum collections worldwide. He teaches regularly at the Pilchuck Glass School and Penland School for Crafts and has lectured widely in the United States and Japan. In 1988 he received the Shimono Sake Museum Prize at the International Glass Now Competition. He has been the recipient of two NEA Grants, a Southern Arts Fellowship Grant and a Tennessee Arts Commission Individual Artist Fellowship.
