Glass – a medium for artists, a medium for communication, forms of expression, techniques
Painted, drilled, sanded, engraved or formed into objects in the fire – glass is a particularly versatile and changeable material that has been valued by artists for many hundreds of years. Not least due to its fascinating properties when interacting with light. It creates mood and atmosphere, and it even tells entire stories, like the ones we know from artistic church glass.
Glass was used in all sorts of ways in architecture, mostly to highlight or cast the ‘right light’ and consciously put the focus on certain elements. Due to the wide range of processing options, it is still used today as a medium for making statements and conveying messages. As a result of our longstanding experience and the vast technical options we have for glass processing, but also with our weakness for that certain something, we offer our artists a partnership on an equal footing. When glass processing is used, we support your project using our skill and natural feel for aesthetics.
Real art is created by real artists
Originally from France, the artist has now lived in Germany for more than 20 years. Since 1991, he has been managing the studio and experimental workshop for glass painting, light and mosaics at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich.
As a freelance artist, he has won numerous competitions and created some wonderful works. With prudent and special dedication, he has devoted himself to glass and its versatility. He has gained a lot of knowledge about the material through his experimental work in the fused glass technique and developed an innovative concept to design of warm glass.
As an artist, he sees a particular challenge in designing rooms with incoming light. His ideas and creations show the various aspects of light and colour and how they interact with each other in the room.
Since 1983, Isabel has worked on a freelance basis for public institutions and private clients as well as collaborating with architects in Nuremberg.
