Therman Statom

THERMAN STATOM works with glass, cutting, painting, and assembles the glass.  He adds found glass objects along the way to create three dimensional sculptures.  Statom is known as an innovator pushing boundaries in glass work.  He is a pioneer in the use of glass as a material for sculpture and room-size installation art.  His work is distinguished from other glass artists of his generation in that he works with a wide variety of materials in addition to blown glass. His works are assembled from an inventory of objects he makes in the studio such as glass ladders, mirrored chairs, exotic blown glass vessels and painted images.  These forms, which seem to possess underlying symbolic meanings, are brought together in compositions imbued with mystery.
