The actual process of blowing glass for the past 40 years has guided Leon Applebaum’s progression as a contemporary glass artist. His traditional and non-traditional techniques capture and accentuate the fluid energy of hot glass. Applebaum’s work has a weighty quality, yet he uses brilliant transparent colors and reflective elements to create a visual lightness. By combining massive glass and reflective interiors that light passes through, his work explores the visual dimensions and the very essence of glass as an artistic material.

Born in Toledo, Ohio, in 1945, Leon Applebaum grew up in what would become the birthplace of American studio glass. He completed his BFA at the Massachusetts College of Art and received his MA at Peabody

College of Vanderbilt University and an MFA from Rochester Institute of Technology. In 1973, Applebaum spent a year studying and working at Kosta Boda Glass in Sweden. He has taught at RIT and Naples Mill Art School in Naples, N.Y. and has conducted workshops throughout the country. His work is represented in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and the Corning Museum of Glass, among many others.

Signed by the artist.
