Hydrochrom is a collection of glass sculptures inspired by the color and the texture of the ocean. Each piece is composed of a free-form assemblage of blown cube clusters, which eventually become light, sound sculpture, or simply freestanding object. Sébastien Léon showed early explorations of this concept as a special exhibition commissioned by world-leading gemstone mining company Gemfields for Design Miami in 2019, and is currently a full collection with Los Angeles-based design gallery Twentieth. It is available on Artsy.
For his NFT collection, Sébastien Léon created three deconstructed one-minute video loops (editions of three) based on his Hydrochrom designs. A fourth edition for each video offers a 3D model of his Hydrochrom sculptures to be used in the Metaverse.
An award-winning designer, musician, and artist, Sébastien Léon has committed to releasing NFTs for each new season, starting his Spring 2022 scheduled for March 3rd.
