Sabine Snykers

Sabine Snykers

"I focus on creating fine handcrafted objects, that express energy and beauty, while expanding the boundaries in the medium of glass."

Glass artist Sabine Snykers creates art glass that is about optimism, passion, and Joie de Vivre. Inspired by music, geometry, nature, and the visual effects of light reflection and transmission, Snykers layers intense colors of glass into centered compositions. The style of work is modern and often reminds viewers of imaginary landscapes.

Snykers works with a technique called kiln-worked or fused glass It is comparable to inlaid mosaics, but instead of cement or glue, the pieces of glass are permanently bonded by the heat of a furnace. Sometimes more than 100 individual pieces of glass, cut, ground and polished go into a single object. Each piece may go through as many as five separate firings in a kiln at high temperature. With each subsequent firing, more layers and details are added. Often 23 karat gold is fired onto the glass and the piece is engraved by a diamond stylus. The glass is shaped during the last firing. The edges of the work are perfected by sanding and polishing.

Sabine Snykers has been working in glass since 1980, and is a graduate of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and the National Higher Institute of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Belgium. Her background is in painting and glass, in harmony with interior spaces. Snykers came to the United States in 1989 and started her glass studio.
