Willem van Oijen
Interested in and accustomed with glass from an early age, Willem van Oijen jr. really started to love working with this amazing and beautiful material while he was receiving his glass art education from his father Willem van Oyen sr. (glass artist - painter - sculptor since 1947)
All his knowledge, experience and artistry he has passed on to his son, who joined his father in his glass art studio BEVO in 1978. In 1993 he succeeded his father in managing the studio. He masters the techniques of sandblasting and glass-appliqué.
Recently his interest is also focused on techniques like pâte-de –verre and glass-casting, which create more possibilities towards making 3-dimensional sculptures.
