Emily Kuchenbecker (b. 1993 in Madison, WI) is a multidisciplinary artist who combines poetry, movement, and objects to create sensory experiences. She holds her Master of Fine Arts from the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), and Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. Emily views glass as an inherently similar material to the body and forces of nature.

Emily currently teaches Space Research in the Art Foundations department of VCU, lampworking at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond, and Fused Glass at Cedarfield Hermitage. She has studied glass techniques at the Pilchuck Glass Studio, Penland School of Crafts, and Oxbow School of Art. In 2019, Emily was a finalist for the Stanislav Libensky Glass Award at the Prague Gallery of Glass, and received a grant to teach a glass workshop at VCU Qatar campus. In January 2020, Emily participated as the artist in residence at DMG School Project.
