About the Artist
The incredible glass sculpture of Leon Applebaum can be found in permanent collections throughout the United States. His work has been the subject of many exhibitions and invitationals, as well as the recipient of many prestigious awards.
The artist himself has been a glassblower, instructor, and designer from Sweden, to New York, and Tennessee, and continues to create mesmerizing sculptures for his collectors to this day.
“The process of blowing glass has been my teacher for the past 35 years. I have developed glass blowing techniques for my work that captivate the fluid energy of hot glass, using fire, air centrifugal force, gravity, and tools to push and pull the glass.
I enjoy exploring the visual dimensions of massive glass and reflective interiors, using transparent colors so that light passes through and brings out the pure beauty and essence of glass.”
