Luce Artist Biography

Charles Miner arrived in Santa Fe in the early 1970s with, as he recalls, only "$400, four chickens, a dog, a wife, and a daughter," and began casting bronzes at the Shidoni Foundry. When the foundry was in danger of being turned into a trailer park, Miner and a group of local artists saved the complex by purchasing the land. Living out of a chicken coop, Miner established his glassworks on this land in 1975 and now works with eight other artists on his intricate castings, where a single piece can take as long as forty days to complete.
