Luce Artist Biography

Daniel Clayman has been showing his glasswork since the mid-1980s, and has helped to push "glass art" toward the realm of "sculpture." His cast glass and metal creations are inspired by architecture and household objects. For Clayman, a successful work is a catalyst for the viewer, sparking ideas, sensations, and memories. The artist creates a climate of mystery in his pieces by manipulating the glass to suggest other materials such as ice, quartz, or jade.
