Lorin Silverman has developed an exceptional reputation as an independent glass artist and designer. Gaining recognition for his technical ability and the planning and execution of large and complex hand blown objects, Lorin has been sought after to fabricate work for other artists and designers. For Lorin, working with glass has to begin with an understanding of the material, heat, and gravity and how they are all intricately interconnected when making a beautiful object.
With the launch of Eidos Glass, at the beginning of 2013, Lorin has introduced a meticulously designed and handcrafted product line of lighting and home décor. Standing for high-quality, one-of-a-kind production, Eidos (Greek for shape, form, image, concept) Glass is the beneficiary of long term concentration on Venetian technique, purposeful experimentation and successful collaboration. The company raises commercial forms to the level of artistry, taking its inspiration from Leonardo da Vinci – Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art.
Lorin is a NYC glass artist who started working with glass in his early teens. He received his BFA in Glass from Alfred University and has studied with and been influenced by Italian maestros Dino Rossin, Pino Signoretto, and the late Elio Quarisa. Lorin has worked at The Corning Museum of Glass as a gaffer in the Museum’s Hot Glass Show and a flameworking artist in the Museum’s Innovations Program. He is a frequent instructor at The Corning Museum of Glass as well as at Brooklyn Glass. Lorin has been a demonstrating artist at Urban Glass in NYC, The Studio at The Corning Museum of Glass, and Hudson Beach Glass in Philadelphia
Lorin’s work has been exhibited at galleries in NYC, Philadelphia, Rhode Island, Virginia, and at The Studio at The Corning Museum of Glass. His work is also in several private collections.
