Who is Nick Beaman? Nick is a young and very talented glass blower whose work is exquisite. Nick will be in the 23rd Annual Las Olas Art Fair Part II this weekend & the 22nd Annual Hyde Park Village Art Fair next month.
Nick Beaman is a glassblower from St. Petersburg, Florida. Before his innate love for the color and fluidity of glass was discovered, Nick concentrated on the forms he could create with clay. His passion of abstract forms was solidified when he first watched a glassblowing demonstration at age sixteen.
Today, Nick lives in Jacksonville, where he is working towards his BFA in Glass at Jacksonville University. He is known for his work with reduction colors, abstract shapes, and murrini. He specializes in vases, bowls, & various sculptural glass forms.
Recently, he has begun to create functional pieces of glass, such as terrariums, which serve as decoration, as well as a housing unit for plants. Nick has worked under many renowned glass artists and has participated and received awards in shows throughout the country. With such experience and passion at this young age, it is apparent that Nick Beaman will have a glowing and prosperous artistic journey ahead of him.
