Seeds: installations around light and reflections, an innovative combination of 2 hot glass techniques

In 2016, thanks to the SofinaBoël  fund for education and talent (Fondation Roi Baudouin) I was able to make significant progress in glassblowing thanks to an intensive workshop with Yann Oulevay in Switzerland. As I started learning to blow, I wanted very quickly to combine it with my first love affair with glass: bead making on the torch.

This innovative way of combining 2 different hot glass techniques led me to explore further how light would create a double reflection in the glass: once inside the thick wall of the blown glass pebble and once on the surface it rests on.

In  2018, I made the installation ‘We are made of more water than blood’ for Muze’umL, the museum of light,in Roeselaere, BE.

On situ, in the museum, the installation measured approximately 9m long by 3m wide. It is made out of over 220 blown glass pebbles and an estimated 900 to 1200 glass beads, made one by one on the torch.  Alongside the installation, I presented a selection of the photographs I take of the reflections of my pieces. The light, the shadows and colors my pieces project have slowly taken as much value as the pieces themselves and are becoming a major component and companion of my work.

In 2019, I took the next step by making smaller mural installations made to measure for my customers, around the same concept of light, reflections and color.

I am currently looking for collaborating with interior designers and architects to push this concept even further.
