Zac Knudson Biography


glass-740x370

Zac Knudson is a seasoned glass artist and fabricator from South Florida. In 2005, he founded
The Glass Artist, a glass design and fabrication house. Since then, he has been working with
design firms on custom architectural and decorative projects. He has also been creating unique
works of art for art galleries, fairs, private collectors, celebrities and publicly funded projects.

Zac has been experimenting with glass since a young age and is continuously pushing its
boundaries. He takes pride in the creativity, quality and durability of all his works which he
achieves by mixing traditional glass working techniques with his experience working in custom
architectural projects.

There is a recurrent theme in his work guided by a passion for nature and elevation of
consciousness. His work reaches into a deeper dimension of thought while maintaining a
grounded foot on the realities of today’s world. Themes like Learning from the past, bees
awareness, death and the elevation of Thought are often seen in his work.

His work is currently shown in The Box Gallery and Danieli Art World in West Palm Beach,
Florida. Upcoming shows include Art Hampton in New York in July and Affordable Art Fair in
New York in September.

ARTIST STATEMENT
“Glass can be seen as fragile and vain, yet in my work it represents strength of character and
the natural world. Its fragility is only a reflection of our own.
My work attempts to remind us of our true place in such natural world the only way I know how;
by looking to the future “
