Marry Buiks [Bodegraven]

Marry Buiks [Bodegraven, the Netherlands] describes his artwork as follows :

"My glass objects are made using the fusing technique. This technique is based upon the melting of pieces of glass.

I often use goldfoil in my larger objects. When visiting Thailand I noticed that the Thai often cover statues with this thin foil in order to please spirits or to make a wish come true.

By adding goldfoil to my artwork I hope that a wish will become true for its owner".

Charlene Bosch [Bonaire]

Charlene, a South-African national and her husband, an Italian, came to live on the island of Bonaire, in the Dutch Caribbean, in 2011.

She started selling her dichroic glass jewellery at the market stand where ships would call for six months of the year... and found herself working day and night to keep up with the demand..

Since, her family and her mother, who taught her the art of making glass jewellery, have joined her in her efforts to keep up with the work.

Each of Charlene's pieces of jewellery is truly unique, and even if she would try .... it is not possible to make two of the same !
