Lisa Naas

With her MFA in Glass from Edinburgh College of Art (2015), Lisa is continued her post-graduate work within the School of Design to pursue her PhD, which she was awarded in 2021 for her research on the creative process (https://era.ed.ac.uk/handle/1842/38635). Her practice pushes glass in new directions and her collaborative work combining glass, sound, and engineering earned the Ingenious Award from the Royal Academy of Engineering (https://www.mdpi.com/2076-0752/8/1/19). Lisa's experience includes formal training in studio art and art history as well as a fifteen year professional career in arts administration that involved extensive work with the Tanglewood Music Festival, where she met her collaborator and counterpart, composer David Faleris. http://www.inconcertwithglass.com/

Lisa’s design research is structured around multi-media testing, the creative process itself, and how innovation occurs. She leads an international, interdisciplinary team of artists, designers, and engineers who comprise the Makers Marks Collaborative and recently co-authored the journal article “Makers Marks: Capturing, Preserving, and Sharing the Sounds of Glassmaking” in the Special Issue of “Contemporary Glass Art: Materiality and Digital Technologies” published by MDPI’s Arts and found here: https://www.mdpi.com/2076-0752/8/1/19.
