CRAIG KRAFT- light Sculptor, Washington, DC USA

Craig Kraft, Neon/Light Artist, par excellent, installed 2 temporary neon sculptures in our studios during a December artwalk weekend. I had the honor of witnessing the two hour installation after which our studio glowed with rainbow beams. Craig and his assistant, Scott Gelo are creators of commissioned neon light sculpture.You can see some of Craig Kraft's sculpture around town. The Arlington Art Center has a large commissioned piece commissioned in Rolled Aluminum and Neon.

Craig teaches neon/light workshops. A professional sculptor for 26 years, Craig Kraft has gained international recognition for advancing the techniques he has developed. He is one of only a handful of light artists in the world who bends his own glass. His website features stunning visuals of his abstract and figurative neon light sculptures. Take a look, it's well worth the visit.
