Glass is my passion!

My name is Monique and I’m living and working in Hilvarenbeek, The Netherlands. In 2004, I discovered working with glass at the torch and I was immediately overwhelmed by it. Through various courses and a lot of experimentation, I started to master flameworking. My early work contains beads and small sculptures from human figures. Later, I have learned various glass blowing techniques at the torch and in the hotshop. Latley I am studying to make paperweights with flameworked inclusions. I am continiously looking for new techniques and materials with which I can create my unique pieces of glass-art. During the years, I have developed my own style, a mixture of elegance and romanticism with a touch of fantasy. Thanks for visiting my website and enjoy looking around.
