Born in Albuquerque, NM and raised in Miami, FL, Leo Tecosky works at the intersection of cultural and craft traditions in the pursuit of knowledge of self. With a BA in Fine Arts from Alfred University and an MFA from the School of Visual Arts, Leo’s work mixes deconstructed elements of hip hop with technical glass making processes. Tecosky is the recipient of the 36th annual Corning Museum Rakow Commission as well as the 2023 Maxwell/Hanrahan Award in Craft. Recent exhibitions include TECO037 at Alma’s RVA and collections by the Chrysler Museum and the Corning Museum of Glass. Tecosky lives and blows glass in Brooklyn, NY.
During the Month of February 2024 Alfred University School of Art and Design and Sculpture / Dimensional Studies will host glass artists who hail from the afro diaspora. Each week an Artist working with glass will lead workshops and lecture on their work and experience.
