Kristi Totoritis, of Heartcoreglass, holds a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University, and an MVA from the Australian National University. Currently, she lives in Richmond, Virginia and works as a studio instructor at the Chrysler Museum of Art Glass Studio and the Visual Arts Center of Richmond.
Kristi flameworks couture and production jewelry. Each individual link in her Chain Link Necklaces are hand-shaped from resilient borosilicate glass after blending and pulling glass colored rods. This repetitious practice is very meditative for the artist.
