GLASS . CLAY . ART .
Patterns of nature -
wind and water acting on rock and sand…
These fleeting landscape images are skillfully transformed into permanent glass and ceramic art by Northern California glass and ceramic artist Kenyon Lewis.
FUNCTIONAL ART GLASS
In addition to privacy, the clear/blurred window glass is hung inside the existing window, high enough to block the view of neighbor “stuff”, yet leaving the trees and sky in clear view...
From purely sculptural to modern industrial - Kenyon Lewis’ original artistic designs apply themselves to endless architectural applications, including kitchen back splashes, privacy glass panels and living space dividers for private residences and commercial interiors..
Some familiar patterns are reminiscent of a walk on the beach or ripples on the river. These different uses can bring an element of function to the design, making them more than decorative.
Tile & Sculpture
Kenyon Lewis is an award winning artist who has been actively showing his original ceramic and glass art since 1987.

From unique handmade tile to porcelain soundproof wall panels, many of Kenyon's elements can be replicated and customized to fit any space.
Kenyon has also assisted other esteemed artists around the globe. The list includes Claes Oldenberg's "House Ball", an iconic sculpture in Berlin, and San Franscisco's "Union Square Art Tile” by Vicky Saulls. He also worked with the late artist Ann Chamberlain on her "Garden Project" at UCSF Mt Zion cancer center’s healing garden.
