Biography: Adrianne Evans

Adrianne Evans
Adrianne Evans

Adrianne Evans draws inspiration from the complex mechanisms that shape the natural world. She received her B.F.A. from Alfred University, where she studied sculpture and glass, and a master's degree in glass sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design, where she now teaches. She spent three years working as an intern and studio manager for Daniel Clayman and her work has been included in the New Glass Review.

Evans was a 2011 Artist-in-Residence at The Studio. In her residency, she explored in glass the forces that shape the earth—erosion, grain sorting, friction, viscosity, flow, gravity, buoyancy, pressure, heat and time—sometimes by adding powdered glass to molds filled with water, letting it settle and creating layers of sediment and distinctive geologic formations.
