Christiaan D. Maas is a dutch artist currently living in the United Kingdom. Chris started his glass career in 2002 after a brief contact with glass in his foundation year at the Rietveld Academie for fine arts in Amsterdam. His interest into this medium set him off on a decade long journey working and training as an assistant at different studio’s in the Netherlands and doing short courses around Europe. After completing a two year Glass skills course at the International glass centre Chris travelled Europe for several years working and learning at different studios and colleges. Chris was working in the UK in 2011 when he decided to complete his Bachelor in Applied Art & Design, specializing in Blown Glass, at Bournemouth University in the UK. Since then Chris has been working as a freelance glassmaker and designer in Europe.
Christiaan's current work is a celebration of colour and movement. He uses transparency and the viscosity of glass when they are in a fluid state which allows him to capture the illusion of movement in colour. The process he has developed to make these objects is a process of reversing and re-creating. It enables him to influence the balance of light, colours and contrast within the objects. This reversion creates a unique set of characteristics in each object.
