Will Grant

Sarasota, Florida

Will Grant was born in New Jersey, but grew up in Palm Springs, California. He studied ceramics in high school and then furthered his education while attending College of the Desert in Palm Springs.

In 1990, Grant accepted an invitation to work in a small village in Taiwan where he was introduced to the art of making furniture out of acrylic and fell in love with the material. After spending two years in Taiwan, he became a partner of the company and decided to move the manufacturing back to Palm Springs.

In 2000, Grant opened his own acrylic furniture company in Sarasota, Florida. As he continued to make furniture, he soon discovered that he could take remnants of acrylic and create art forms in sculpture. These mini masterpieces caught the eye of some key executives from the commercial world. Grant started to create centerpieces for Walt Disney’s corporate parties and displays for various companies such as Burberry and David Yurman Jewelry. In 2005, Grant was introduced to Israeli artist, Yaacov Agam, and he was instantly inspired by the movement of his pieces.

Since then, Grant has primarily spent his time creating art sculpture forms. Grant’s artwork has been featured in many art galleries around the world. Recently, he started incorporating glass, metal and wood into his acrylic sculptures. He says, “I am constantly inspired by what is around me, and I rush to my studio every morning to see what new techniques I can discover. My imagination creates endless goals and challenges and the biggest reward is hearing, “I just love your work, I have never seen anything like it!”
