Adam Aaronson has been at the heart of British studio glass for more than 25 years, first as a gallery owner, discovering and promoting new glass talent, and subsequently as an artist in his own right. In 1996 Adam established his own glass blowing studio in Earl's Court, London: Aaronson Noon Glass Studio, from which he currently works with a team of skilled glassblowers. Adjacent to the studio is Zest Gallery, opened in 2003, with the dual goals of showcasing his own artistry, whilst continuing to bring outstanding British glass to a wider audience.
Adam specialises in free blown glass, and his work experiments with the hugely varied possibilities of the medium. His vessels and sculptures are at once a celebration of the simplicity of pure form, and also an investigation into the possibilities of layering. His coloured patinas include complex abstract arrangements, drawing on painterly techniques used by the artists Pollock and Mir, but also inspired by a love of nature and landscape akin to the Impressionists. Working both on major commissions and unique bodies of work, Adam holds a single solo show annually at Zest Gallery, as well as participating in major crafts exhibitions nationwide and at various art fairs including SOFA New York, Art London, and the Cambridge Glass Fair.
