VOL. 09.04.2018 | ADAM WAIMON

ABOUT ADAM WAIMON



Adam Waimon is a sculptural glass artist. Inspiration for his work is drawn from a multitude of sources, from the natural world, architectural design, to transitional life experiences. While remaining diverse in his inspiration, the resulting work is cohesive and defined. His sculptural glass forms incorporate subtle monochromatic transparent color. This singular use of color allows the delicately engraved surface to refract and transmit light. Waimon utilizes the glass to create strong elegant forms with a minimalist approach. Multiple forms are often placed together allowing for interaction and use of negative space.
