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. What started with scientific glass blowing with the torch, ended with studying glass blowing and sandcasting with the glory hole at the "Glazen Huis" in Lommel, Belgium. 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.
