long Chris had to decide how to make his comeback and so far he's
been quite successful at it. Through his social media
presence his tribe has begun to grow and become a loyal and
dedicated group of fans of personality and work.

St. Paul, Minnesota-based Chris Aus (Sunsi
Glass) began glassblowing in 1998 and quickly earned a reputation
for quality, innovative functional glass in the Midwest. After
building a successful wholesale/retail business during a tumultuous
time for glass artists, Chris walked away from the craft in 2005.
In July 2016, Chris returned to the torch - after more than a
decade away from the industry - motivated to push his skill set and
incorporate classic techniques (line work, foldovers, fuming) into
a new era of functional glass art. Chris is currently a
glassblowing instructor at Legacy Glass in Minneapolis, MN and has
a number of projects in the works. You can connect with Chris/Sunsi
