Christopher Kerr-Ayer grew up in rural Vermont and began working with glass at a young age when he was a junior in high school. He learned and refined his craft as a glass blower working in studios of renowned glass artists around the country for several years. His personal studio practice focuses on the space between functional and non-functional objects, producing both sculptural work and production glassware. He started THE POOL GLASSWORKS, a design-forward housewares company and it is through THE POOL that Haand and Chris created this collaborative line of glassware exclusively for Haand. Christopher is currently based in New Hampshire and continues to travel the country, learning, exploring, and refining his craft.
