When two continents melt in glass

  • • Anne and Vincent's art is the result of training in two different cultures
  • • Their works contain social themes and messages
  • • They each have 20 years of experience working with glass

From two different continents, Europe and North America, Anne Donze and Vincent Chagnon bring together their different heritages in glass work. Anne brings her knowledge of jewellery and glass designing to the partnership whereas Vincent's background is as a glass artist. The union between these two specialties reveal collections of unusual blown glass pieces each of which incorporates their individual talents. After literary studies, Anne devoted herself to the decorative arts. She began to create jewels, continuing her studies at the Centre Européen de Recherches et de Formation aux Arts Verriers, in Lorraine. Vincent has been an artist since 2002. Always in search of new techniques, he worked in the Czech Republic, in several laboratories in France, and taught at the Upper School of the Arts of the Rhine, in Strasbourg.
