“Waimon utilizes glass to create strong elegant forms with a minimalist approach”
Medium: Blown glass
Adam Waimon’s 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. He gathers his inspiration mainly from the natural world. Multiple forms are often placed together allowing for interaction and use of negative space. Each form goes through numerous stages to accomplish it’s final design. Initially each piece is sculpted into shape. Once it cools from the glassblowing process the labor intensive procedure of carving begins. Textures and intricate details are cut into the surface using diamond embedded tools. Subsequently, the entire piece is sandblasted to unify the surface. The final and most delicate step of the process requires the entire carved form to be reheated. This will heat only the exterior and will give the piece its final surface.
Waimon has exhibited in numerous galleries throughout the United States, including Ken Saunders Gallery (IL), Behnke Doherty
Gallery (CT), Trudy Labell Fine Art (FL), Bakalar Gallery (MA), Heather Gaudio Fine Art (CT), and Aberson Exhibits (OK).
His work has been juried into auctions to benefit the Tacoma Museum of Glass (WA), Museum of Fine Art (MA) and is in the
permanent collection at the Mattatuck Museum (CT). Adam Waimon has been included in multiple publications, most notably,
The New York Times (NYC), New England Home Magazine (CT), Greenwich Post (CT), and Original Voices exhibition catalog (IL).
