Adam Aaronson’s route into the world of glass was an unconventional one. After leaving university with a degree in international relations, he was offered the chance to take some informal glass-blowing lessons and was immediately captivated by what he saw as the unlimited potential of glass as an artistic medium. That was back in 1977. In the years that followed, Adam ran a studio glass gallery, commissioning and retailing the work of established British and international glass artists, while making glass as often as his spare time allowed.
By 1986, he was finally able to open his own studio and to devote himself full-time to his passion – designing and making glass. Adam’s current studio is in Surrey, where he develops his work with the assistance of a team of craftspeople. One of Adam’s major commissions has been to make 168 glass discs which formed the New Dawn window. This was unveiled in the Houses of Parliament on 7 June 2016, the 150th anniversary of the first mass petition submitted to Parliament calling for women's right to vote.
