Leen Van Waes




[col3] Biography

“I am a jewelry designer specialized in glass art. With an affinity for dance & nature, I entwine the aesthetics of elegant shapes  into everything I create.
Re:Nascentia (2012), my latest concept, is inspired on the enigmatic ‘Ophelia’ from Shakespeare’s Hamlet.  Drawing from my curiosity around her symbolic flowers , I  immersed myself into the world behind them, blending their arkane forces of nature, love and death”.[/col3]

[col3] Work

“After experimenting with various materials, I discovered glass in 2009, which became the perfect medium to translate my inspiration into art. By melting the glass, manipulating it whilst playing with gravity and color, I create unique, feminine forms that directly bring my imaginary world a little closer to reality”.[/col3]
