Damien François

Damien François has been creating art in glass since 2006. His works have been exhibited internationally, including a traveling solo exhibition in 2014. François’ work has been featured in several catalogs and publications in Europe and the United States, including three issues of New Glass Review. He has assisted and worked with several international artists and studied glassmaking at the Danish Design School, Center for Glass and Ceramics, Denmark; Pilchuck Glass School; and Engelshom Højskole of Bredsten, Department of Glass and Ceramic, Denmark. “By exposing an unfamiliar side of the characteristics of glass,” says François, “my artwork aims to approach issues of perplexity and uncertainty, I’m driven primarily by material experimentation with glass, based on the exploration and exploitation of its multitude possibilities.”
