PHIL DE VERRE
Glass blower with torch
A glassblower using a blowtorch, Philippe works with coloured or transparent glass rods and tubes at 1400°C. Heaping up the glass, playing with weightlessness and using tweezers, he brings to life a host of characters and animals as his imagination takes him, always with a humorous touch reminiscent of the world of cartoons.
Come and discover the work of this torch-light glassmaker during demonstrations at his workshop in Sallertaine, in the heart of the Île aux Artisans.
