Luce Artist Biography

Chuck Boux worked in electrical construction for seventeen years until a visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art prompted his interest in glass. Seeing glass objects that had been blown more than five hundred years ago inspired him to learn the technique, and he immediately quit his job to construct a glass furnace. Boux often tells people who buy his work that they are not merely acquiring art, but assuming an obligation to preserve the piece and ensure its survival for future generations.
