Lindsey Adelman was born in New York City in 1968. Her current work is a culmination of endlessly making her things with her hands as a little girl, to receiving a BA in English Literature, to working for the Smithsonian, to finding her way to RISD to earn a BFA in Industrial Design. An ongoing interest in combining the hand-crafted with the ma-chine-made, the sensual with the practical, and the feminine with the masculine consistently marks her work. Adelman founded the company Butter with David Weeks in 2000 where they designed affordable products for the home until 2005. Since then Adelman has focused on her own line of hand-blown glass lighting as well as an ongoing series of drawings painstakingly crafted with strands of human hair. The collective work has been included in the Cooper-Hewitt Design Triennial and Design Miami and has received awards from the ICFF Editors, ID, and Blueprint. It has been published in numerous magazines and books. Lindsey lives with her husband Ian and their son Finn in Brooklyn.
