As a Glass Artist, Nisha Bansil
works in NYC and the Catskill Region of NY, where she fabricates commissioned glass works as well as her personal projects. Organic forms are deconstructed and reassembled to further investigate their underlying structures. Like the tessellated patterns found in Islamic architecture, her work strives to meld natural phenomena with geometric shapes.
She has been a resident artist at The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass, Bullseye Projects and The Chrysler Museum of Art. A Fulbright Scholar recipient her work has been exhibited nationally. Nisha teaches her techniques to students around the world with various institutions including The Penland School of Craft, Corning Museum of Glass, Pittsburgh Glass, Creative Glas, & The Bullseye Glass Co.
Bansil works at The Metropolitan Museum of Art as a conservation mount maker and preparator.
