THE STORY BEHIND OUR ART


At Esther’s we showcase the interesting international talent of Frank van den Ham’s colourful glass artworks. Frank is a well-known glass artist from the Netherlands, who has spent more than thirty years working with the technique of glass fusing. He now lives in Bali.

WORKING WITH GLASS


The technique of fusing and kiln-forming glass is an ancient method that was used thousands of years ago, but was forgotten and only rediscovered in the 1950s. Van den Ham has played an important role in ensuring that this technique, which allows an exact use of colour, pattern and form, has re-emerged as an important art form.

The rich culture of the artist’s home country serves as great inspiration for his glass creations, and he also draws fresh inspiration from his fascination with Africa and the Far East.
