ACO Artist Discussion with Erwin Timmers

By June 11, 2023December 23rd, 2023No Comments

Erwin Timmers is Co-founder and Director of the Washington Glass School and one of the DC area’s leading ‘eco-artists’.  Recycling, waste and how they relate to society are recurring themes in his work.  Erwin’s main medium is one of the least recycled materials; float glass or window glass, and he has had to develop new techniques to exploit the properties of this material. His approach to art is multi-faceted, incorporating metalwork, innovative lighting and glass design.  His sculptural artwork can be seen in an increasing number of local, regional and national galleries.  He has received multiple public art commissions and is also featured in numerous private collections. He has been featured in a number of books, notably “100 Mid-Atlantic Artists” by Ashley Rooney, “Cast” by Jen Townsend and Renée Zettle-Sterling.  Montgomery County honored Erwin Timmers as the county’s “Outstanding Artist” in 2018.
