American glass artist Therman Statom (b.1953) uses sheet glass, which he reworks, paints, and adds other glass objects to to create unique, three-dimensional sculptures. Statom is also recognized for his large-scale, site-specific glass installations that utilize sound and digital imagery to create an engulfing experience for the visitor. The recipient of numerous awards and honors, including the 2008 Outstanding Achievement Award presented by UrbanGlass and two fellowship grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, Statom became interested in glass work as a youth. He went on to study at Pilchuck Glass School in 1971 and the Rhode Island School of Design. After earning his BA in 1974, he received his Masters from Pratt Institute School of Art and Design in 1978. In studied the hot glass process under Richard Marquis at the University of California in Los Angeles and went on to direct the program from 1983 to 1985.
