About the artist
Daniel Clayman is a sculptor, born in 1957 in Lynn, MA. Always the tinkerer, Daniel had planned a career as a theater lighting designer, studying in the Theater and Dance Department at Connecticut College, eventually dropping out of college to work in the professional theater, dance and opera world. A chance class in 1980 introduced the artist to using glass as a sculptural material. In 1986, He received his BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and has maintained a studio in East Providence, RI since then.
His interests in engineering, the behavior of light, and the memory of experience, acts as an impetus for much of the work. In the end, Clayman’s sculpture is a “manifestation of a moment of thought.” Working large and small, he employs technology from the simplest hand tool to the latest three-dimensional modeling and production tools.
