Design Week RI is an exciting series of events to celebrate, discuss, and showcase the latest in design in Rhode Island.
Rhode Island might be small, but our design sector’s impact is felt around the world. Come to IYRS for two exciting presentations on Monday, September 27, 2021!

Daniel Clayman is a sculptor who has been working with glass as his primary medium for thirty-five years. His work reveals his interests in engineering, the behavior of light, and how the memory of experience acts on his thought process. Working large and small, he employs technology from the simplest hand tool to the latest three-dimensional modeling and production tools.

An artist/educator, Daniel just completed an appointment as Professor of Craft and Material Studies, Effron Family Endowed Chair in Glass at University of the Arts, Philadelphia, PA. He has been a Visiting Critic and Artist in Residence at universities in the US and abroad including the Rhode Island School of Design, Mass College of Art and Design, Ohio State University, Tyler School of Art and Bezalel Academy of Art in Jerusalem.
