About Aron Leaman
The lines left in the sand at low tide, the motion of the eddies and current, the pattern that bugs leave on a branch when you remove the bark, these natural patterns have found a way into and have inspired my work. I sometimes incorporate at the base, a natural element, like stone or wood giving the pieces a direct connection to my inspirations. My colors are based on controlling the effects that one can achieve with glass. I am regally experimenting with color and light, building layers to capture movement to keep these pieces alive. I am producing a feeling within a contained form allowing the patterns to start to take shape in one’s own thoughts. The closer that one looks the more imagery will start to come out.
The bird form has been ever present in my work. To me it is a reminder of place and home. Translating the bird shape into glass has been challenging, but the graceful lines curves lend itself well as a canvas for the patterns and feeling I am creating.
