ADAM AARONSON Glass
’I am inspired by the ceaseless mutability of light on the landscape, the sky and on water. I am fascinated by horizons. Glass is the ideal medium to express this idea of continual change since its properties are inherently mutable not only in its molten state but also in the way the play of light creates endless nuances in the finished piece.’
Adam Aaronson has more than 25 years experience in the field of contemporary glass, initially commissioning and retailing the work of established British and international glass artists and later becoming a glass artist in his own right, designing and producing his own work.
Adam initially studied ceramics under the direction of Gordon Baldwin, the distinguished potter and sculptor. While studying for a degree in International Relations at Keele University he continued to study ceramics and after graduating joined the Coleridge Gallery, the market leader in London for contemporary glass. There he acquired an extensive understanding of contemporary glass, partly from his experience as a dealer but mainly through visiting art glass studios all over the world.
In 1977, he began taking informal glassblowing lessons from Peter Layton, one of the founders of the British studio glass movement. This fired his imagination and played a large part in his subsequent development as an artist and designer working with glass.
Adam's work can be found in many galleries nationwide as well as Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Dubai, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Japan, Holland, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Taiwan and the U.S.A.
