Dylan Martinez

Glass artist Dylan Martinez was born in 1985 in Wisconsin. He holds an MFA in Glass from Ball State University and a BS from the University of Wisconsin – River Falls.

Martinez’s crystal clear glass sculptures are inspired by perceptions of reality. The artist is red-green colorblind, therefore his work is driven by a curiosity of perception. Inspired by Trompe L’œil, H2O/SiO2 is a hot sculpted glass hand molded entirely by the artist. The trapped movement of the rising bubbles and the gesture of the forms convince the eye that the sculptures are just as they appear: bags of water.

In regards to his work, the artist states: “Our vision has the greatest effect on our understanding of the world. Through my artwork, I create scenarios in which the viewer must question their capacity to navigate between reality and illusion.”

Most recently Martinez has completed a one-month residency in Murano, Italy, a region famous for high-quality artisan glass. Martinez’s sculptures are sought after internationally with exhibitions in America, Italy, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and Taiwan. His work has been included in several notable publications, including Interior Design Magazine, American Craft Magazine, and Aesthetica Magazine.
