Adam Waimon

 

Adam Waimon is a sculptural glass artist. Inspiration for his work is drawn from a multitude of sources with a primary focus in the natural world. While remaining diverse in his inspiration, the resulting work is cohesive and defined. Through a multiple stage process of blowing, sculpting, grinding/carving and reheating of the glass, Waimon is able to unearth his abstract yet relatable sculptural forms. Each stage brings technical challenge along with creative resolve. Often working in multiple forms Waimon creates a dialog between forms by activating the negative space.

 

Adam Waimon’s sculptural glass forms incorporate subtle monochromatic transparent colors. This 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. He gathers his inspiration from a multitude of sources with a primary focus in the natural world. Multiple forms are often placed together allowing for interaction and use of negative space
