Glass Art Exhibit: Therman Statom
By Angela Wampler | August 28, 2007Statom's primary medium is sheet glass. He cuts, paints and assembles the glass, adding found objects along the way, to create compelling sculptures of simple but powerfully charged forms: houses, ladders, chairs.
He began his study of glass at Pilchuck Glass School in 1971. He was awarded a BFA in sculpture from Rhode Island School of Design in 1974 and the MFA in Sculpture from Pratt Institute of Art and Design in 1978. His career includes exhibitions at numerous museums including the Smithsonian Institution. His public commissions can be seen in California at the Los Angeles Central Public Library, Los Angeles International Airport, and at the Ice Center in San Jose, California.
