About Adam

Known for his portraits and dynamic figures, Adam Beane has been a high-profile sculptor for over 10 years. During his career he invented Cx5 and Cx5s, a system of revolutionary sculpting materials that are ideal for achieving incredible levels of detail in portrait sculpts, as well as for the construction of complex toy industry pieces, dynamic maquettes in the special effects industry, and machined forms for prototyping. He now runs Adam Beane Industries, Inc., the company he founded to bring Cx5 and his sculpting techniques to sculptors worldwide. 

I am ecstatic to be attending Maker Fair, because for as much as I am known as a sculptor, I am a maker and an inventor first. I am dying to see all of the amazing things that people are making and I'm beyond proud that ABI has been selected to be both a Startup Sponsor and a speaker this year. - Adam
