Alicia Kelemen

K4 Glass Art

"I focus my sculptures on abstract geometrical forms, texture and pure lines, highly influenced by my architectural background. "

Venezuelan glass artist Alicia Kelemen brings out the desired optic effects, forms, textures and a wide array of structures and color in her contemporary multi-media layered collaged mosaic murals, decorative art for the wall, mirrors, home accent floral vases and Judaic Art influenced by her colorful and exotic tropical towery Tepees landscapes and majestic natural wonders cascades like "Angel Falls". Her abstract designs depict the deep tones of jungles and transparent beaches.

Kelemen creates her art by drafting manually each piece to scale to combine the mosaic technique, using travertine stone with Kiln-Formed glass. Her technique is created by incorporating multi-layers collages of fused glass, flat glass, color mirror accents and copperĀ­ gold wiring and cut stone.

Alicia Kelemen is a second generation architect and glass maker since 1983. She grew up in Venezuela surrounded by glass projects within her home and her father's constant creativity and inspiration. She furthers her knowledge in the USA under the master professor Ludwig Schaffrath in USA and Germany.
