Bio

Chris Bohach was born in 1978 and grew up in Atlanta,Georgia. He moved to Kentucky in 1996 to attend Centre College; during his time there he was introduced to glassblowing and began working with Stephen Rolfe Powell. After graduating in 2000 and receiving a B.A. in studio art, Bohach continued to work for Powell, up until 2012, as a production assistant and cold worker.

In 2004, Bohach entered the M.F.A. program at the University of Kentucky focusing on sculpture and new media. During his time there, he introduced glass kiln-forming methods into the gamut of casting techniques already established within the program. Furthermore, he  explored new practices and materials for creating art, and taught undergraduate sculpture classes.

His thesis Inclosure (the title being a hybrid play on words describing the closure of completing the M.F.A. and a confined space) was shown in Lexington,Kentucky in 2008, and consisted of multi-media installations containing key elements made of glass, wood, and various other materials.

He recently completed a year long appointment as Visiting Professor of Art at Centre College instructing both introductory and advanced level courses. In 2012, Bohach relocated back to Atlanta and began developing a relationship with Atlanta Hot Glass where he is currently an instructor and working artist. He exhibits work nationally and internationally, and equally enjoys creating art and teaching others.
