Hung Nguyen was born in Hoa binh, Vietnam in 1959, at the beginning of Vietnam War. After the war in 1975, the country was left in a turbulent state and at the age of 22, he escaped from Vietnam on dangerous, crude and over-crowded boat to seek freedom and the opportunity to express himself through art. He arrived in the United States in 1981 as a refugee.
In 1985, he started working as a glass sculpture artist and beginning alongside one of the best internationally acclaimed Masters of Glass Art, Hans Godo Frabel. Frabel often describes Hung as "...better than I am in large glass sculpting. Nguyen is not only an outstanding glass artist but is also a gifted designer and is responsible for developing several of the more popular designs for the Frabel Studio."
Hung developed a natural talent for the creation and design of glass art over 27 years. Hung has been recognized for his exceptional skills in creating outstanding glass art pieces and earned him the title of Master of Glass Art. His works of art are in the hands of some of the world's most famous people such as: President George Bush, Mikhail Gorbachov, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Wayne Newton and Larry King.
Hung's passion for the simple elegance and beauty of Georgia's state flowers resulted in many of his sculptured being exhibited at places like the Atlanta Botanical Garden of Georgia, and McKee Botanical Garden in Vero Beach, Florida.
"I love the art of glass making the very first moment I saw it. I can see through it clearly that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life, to create beautiful glass art that people can appreciate and enjoy."- Hung Nguyen
