Adam Hussain

Adam Hussain designs and makes bespoke glass art from concept to installation using warm glass processes. He creates work for corporate installations, gallery exhibitions, contemporary craft fairs, art websites and private commissions. 

All Adam's artworks are unique pieces, having a distinctive handmade character and are rich in both colour and depth.
‘A Fine Line’ is his award winning series of artworks constructed from 1mm glass rods to create geo-metric patterns and abstract images. This intricate and detailed technique can be a timely process and the final outcomes are very rewarding. He uses a combination of both transparent and opaque glass to transmit and stop light passing through the piece; this becomes an integral part of the finished artwork.

In the future he will be developing and pushing these techniques further.

The photography of all Adam's range on this site is by Simon Mulholland.
