Estate of Lucartha Kohler, Philadelphia, PA, and Durham, NC. Kohler studied visual arts at Carnegie Mellon Institute, Moore College of Art, and Penland School of Crafts. She specialized in glass casting but worked and taught in various other techniques (e.g., fusing/slumping, flame-working, blowing, and mosaics). Lucartha exhibited her work in more than 100 shows across the United States, Japan and Hungary, received many awards and commissions, and her work is included in important glass collections. She regularly taught courses at The Studio at the Corning Museum of Glass. She authored two books about glass art that were considered seminal works in her field: Glass: An Artists Medium (1998) and Women Working in Glass (2003).
