Faculty: Catherine Benoit
Catherine Benoit, at eight years old, saw a glass blower and that was it. She fell in love. Her studies focused on art, and after exploring several mediums, Catherine graduated from Espace Verre in 2002. She has been creating utilitarian and decorative objects in glass since. In addition to making, she also loves teaching glassblowing. Her two favourite techniques are glassblowing and kiln casting. Catherine's pieces reflect her second passion: dance. The flamboyant colours of the costumes and the sensual curves of the dancers translate through her artistic vocabulary. Ardour, passion, and love of life emerge from her creations as much as they do from her.
