Daniel Clayman is a sculptor who has been working with glass as his primary medium for thirty-five years. His work reveals his interests in engineering, the behavior of light, and how the memory of experience acts as the impetus for much of his work. Working large and small, he employs technology from the simplest hand tool to the latest three-dimensional modeling and production tools.
An artist/educator, Daniel has taught in Japan, Israel, and Australia in addition to a robust teaching schedule here in the U.S. He has been a Visiting Critic at the Rhode Island School of Design and most recently has been the Artist in Residence at Tyler School of Art and Massachusetts College of Art and Design. He lectures frequently and teaches workshops at Penland School of Crafts, Pilchuck and The Studio at the Corning Museum of Glass, among others.
