Adam Hussain – Contemporary Glass Art
I design and make contemporary glass art from concept to installation for a variety of different markets. I use kiln work techniques to create one off artworks and architectural installations that have a handmade character. I only use ‘Bullseye’ glass materials within my work for its vibrant colours and outstanding quality.
My black and white photography of modern architecture often initiates research and my studio practice has developed by utilising these images. I am inspired by the works of modern painters such as Mondrian and Rothko for their use of bold and vivid colours. The abstract nature of my art is a fusion of all these factors.
My award winning artworks ‘A Fine Line’ are my latest designs and are featured in ‘Vogue’s Contemporary Collection’. These artworks are constructed with 1mm and 2mm glass stringers to create geo-metric patterns and abstract imagery. The relationship between glass, light and space is a key element in my studio practice. By using both transparent and opaque glass I can experiment with the transmitted and reflective light created by each piece of art.
