Lindsey Adelman, ‘Liminal Vessel’, 2014, Carwan Gallery

The Liminal collection is about the threshold between consciousness and unconsciousness, and also refers to the place between the bronze and glass. The state between liquid and solid, referring to both metal and glass, alludes to the place where two people meet and collaborate. Glass artist Michiko Sakano blows directly into Darcy Miro's metal sculptures to create a fused vessel.

About Lindsey Adelman

In her studio on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, designer Lindsey Adelman blends organic inspirations, handmade craft, and machine precision. Since 2006, the New York native has focus on hand-blown glass, collaborating with local artisans on pieces like the Bubble Series chandelier, featuring handmade glass globes suspended from brass arms, and the Knotty Bubbles, a tangle of rope, glass, and light inspired by Japanese packaging and maritime culture. Her early experience working with off-the-shelf parts served as the inspiration for her customizable, mix-and-match “You Make It” lighting series. Other pieces include her charming woodchuck pendants, hanging LED lights with colorful stems inspired by glassblowing tools, and darker designs inspired by the idea of nature gone wild—a trait that spills over into her artwork, drawings painstakingly made of human hair.
