Glass at the service of design

  • • Daring is Vincent's watchword in life and work
  • • Before going to work he studies – a lot
  • • His creations are not functional but works of art

Human character and human being in all their facets are for Vincent Breed the starting point of all of his works. They are the elements that most fascinate him and stimulate him in his creativity. His pieces – which are truly unique – express the challenge of human beings who over the centuries have always faced the impossible. What seems insurmountable can actually be done and therefore the concept of impossible remains unexplored. Through his art, made with blown glass, an ancient material that humans have manipulated for centuries, Vincent investigates the limits without limits. Its realisations are therefore unique and not functional – just decorative. Vincent’s art is rich in study, maniacal precision reveals great work.

These “Gourmandises”, or Delicacies, are made of blown and sculpted glass and raises questions in us about visual pleasure in the gustatory senses, between fantasy and imaginary expression, between reality and enjoyment.

ShanShui 2

This sculpture was designed by Samuel Accoceberry. ShanShui is like a landscape, a pretext for contemplation, introspection and reverie. This blown glass work refers to those famous vaporous landscapes that inspired Chinese literature. These soft and colourful shapes seem to have been polished by the water, and play with their translucency and allow a plant to be revealed as if suspended, in equilibrium in an instant.
