Christina Bothwell is a self-taught, experimental glass artist who explores her interest in birth, death, and renewal while imbuing her work with a sense of wonder and hope. She was born in New York City and currently lives in Stillwater, Pennsylvania with her husband and teenage children. In this rural setting, nature is the main source of inspiration for her work. She employs a unique approach to the medium, and her figurative sculptures often contain another figure within: “I try to express more than our bodies. My ongoing interest in the spiritual infuses my work and runs parallel to the narrative I’m creating.” Her work can be found in the public collections at the Corning Glass Museum in New York, the Glasmuseet Ebeltoft in Germany, Museum of Contemporary Glass in Denmark, Shanghai Museum of Contemporary Glass Art (SMOG), Racine Art Museum, Cincinnati Museum of Art, Fuller Craft Museum, Heller Gallery in New York, Austin Art Projects in California, and the Smithsonian Museum of Art’s Archives of American Art Oral History Collection, Mobile Museum of Art, and Palm Springs Museum.
