Jeremy Maxwell Wintrebert




Artist of the Week: Jeremy Maxwell Wintrebert

"The first time Wintrebert saw hot glass moving at the end of a blow pipe, it was glowing, dancing, dangerous, delicate, mysterious, fast, hypnotizing and very sensual. It grabbed him deep inside and has not let him go since. To learn the skills and mastery of free hand glass blowing, Wintrebert traveled all over, working in different studios and production shops. California, Florida, Washington, Murano Italy, Czeck Republic and since 2007 he has experience combines working in small production shops to being a part of very high end artistic creations.

The design approach and sensitivity emerged into Jeremy’s work since his return to France. Design is such major part of the history of glass in Europe, that it is hard to avoid.”

The extremely delicate look of Jeremy’s work goes through such a rough process of creation its almost nerve racking to watch as it reaches the final stages. The outcome of his works are well worth the anxiety that comes along w being a viewer.

Artist of the Week: Dave Walters
After graduation Dave moved to Seattle, Washington to work for Dale Chihuly and many other prominent glassworkers in the Seattle area. While working for Chihuly he met Lino Tagliapietra. In 1994 David began working with Lino and has assisted him for the past 17 years - working and traveling with the Maestro. David regards Lino as a central influence in his life and an inspiration to his development as an artist.
Walters work is a combination of illustrations from children’s books and a visual perception of any college psychology textbook. Its just moody enough to leave a feeling of surrealism while still leaving the viewer comfortable. The impressive works of Dave Walters are what we’d hope historians discover once we’re all gone.
