After obtaining his MFA at Tyler School of Art, Temple University (Philadelphia, PA), Gene Koss started the Tulane University glass program and brought the movement of glass art to New Orleans, LA.
Working with serial cast glass parts to enlarge scale and combining these elements with metal, wood and other materials to create monumental works, he has raised glass sculpture to the realm of public art. Koss’s work has had a profound impact on American artists working in both steel and glass media. His work is included in numerous private collections and has been displayed in museums and galleries throughout the United States and abroad. Koss is represented by Arthur Roger Gallery in New Orleans, LA.
