Carmen Lozar is a glass artist and a faculty member of the Ames School of Art at Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, Illinois. Although she travels abroad to teach and share her love for glass - most recently to Turkey, Italy, and New Zealand - she has always returned to her Midwestern roots. Carmen has had two residencies at Corning Museum of Glass and been a demonstrating artist at four Glass Art Society conferences. A graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, she completed her post-graduate degree at Alfred University, New York, and is represented by the Ken Saunders Gallery in Chicago. Carmen's most current body of work deals with spills. Life is messy, these small narratives accentuate the movement and flow of glass but also are telling in how they represent our relationship to the world.
