Field of Art: Artist, Industrial Designer and Architect
Lara Knutson is an Artist, Industrial Designer and Architect of Norwegian and Swedish descent who lives and works in New York City. She received a master’s degree in Industrial Design and a bachelor’s degree in Architecture from Pratt Institute and believes her work is informed by the interplay of light, space, materials and structure that unite these disciplines.
Her soft glass series is in the permanent collections of the Corning Museum of Glass and the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Lara’s new work is created using her patented method for making light look three dimensional with light and microspheres.
Lara is also an Adjunct Professor of Design at both Kean University and New York Institute of Technology. She was a recent Artist Fellow and now a member of The National Arts Club in New York.
