Orcum Erdem is a multidisciplinary designer and glass artist living in Helsinki. He studied at Aalto University School of Art Design and Architecture and completed his MA degree in Contemporary Design (2019). Orcum has focused on artistic colour & material research throughout his glass art career and specialised in hot glass forming techniques for creative processes. Today, he works on multi-sensorial material experiences and continues his journey as an independent artist, designer, and entrepreneur.
In glassworks, Orcum appreciates the material as a tool for thinking and takes the artistic process as an interplay of form, colour, and texture in exploring the expressive possibilities of glass. He designs his works as parts of large installations and thematic collections.
