Adam Aaronson
Glass Artist

Adam has been at the heart of British studio glass for more than 25 years, firstly as a gallerist and subsequently as an artist in his own right, learning glass later in his career and developing self-taught methods. In 2013, Adam moved his gass blowing studio to West Horsley, Surrey. Adam specialises in free blown glass. His vessels and sculptures are at once a celebration of the simplicity of pure form, and also an investigation into layering.

Details about work or recent projects

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 Miro, 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's work is always on display at his studio in Surrey. During the year, Adam participates in a number of group shows as part of the Surrey Sculpture Society, and as Fellow of the Society of Designer Craftsmen.
