Artist
Whitfield, Warner & Beatriz Kelemen
Weaverville, NC
Artist Statement
I am working with borosilicate glass and fire creating original sculptural forms that are inspired by nature and movement and designed with the goal of capturing movement, light and simplistic flowing forms. My sculptures are created without the use of any molds or castings. They are formed by melting the glass into a taffy like texture. With the aid of heat and gravity the glass is gathered, stretched and blown into shape. I attended the Portland School of Art and the University of Maine and later pursued studies in glass at two of the world's most renowned schools, The Haystack Craft School in Maine and The Penland Craft school in North Carolina.
