Don’t miss your chance to see these two breathtaking exhibitions!
Nicholaus Clawson, born in 1983, is a multidisciplinary artist originally from San Diego, California. He began his exploration of sculpture, bronze casting, fine jewelry, ceramics and multimedia assemblage during his college years. In 2012 Clawson turned his focus toward glass. While attending Palomar College for glass making in San Marcos, California, Clawson discovered Pilchuck Glass School and made the journey north to the school’s secluded forest location. After working Summers filling various roles on campus, Clawson based himself in Washington State. While living and working in the Pacific Northwest from 2015-2017, he was given a studio art residency and apprenticeship at Cat & Snake Gallery in Bellingham, Washington. At the conclusion of his residency in late 2018, Clawson migrated closer to Seattle where he currently resides and continues his artistic practice.
Clawson’s current body of work explores the experience light in nature and life. His palettes are reminiscent of the polychromatic nuances of the morning and night sky.
