We host a weekly public event - FRIDAY NIGHT LIVE - showcasing local international artists working in glass and introducing them to our ever growing public community. Gent Glas is one of the few places in the world you can enjoy a delicious Belgian beer and see a team of 5 or 6 glass blowers create incredible sculptures free of charge.
In our short existence we have hosted more than 17 visiting artists, who have demonstrated for the public or worked closely with our local glass community. Our recent visiting artists have included: Ondrej Novotny, Christiaan Maas, Steven Ciezki, Charlyn Reynolds, Angus Powers, Deborah Czeresko, Kim Harty, and more.
Gent Glas offers workshops for beginners and private lessons. We also offer team building events, public demonstrations, and host private parties. We have worked with several Belgian artists and designers including Keon Vanmechelen and Frederik Delbart and offer high quality commissioned works for private individuals and/or designers and artists.
John Moran co-founded and currently maintains, manages, and operates the studio. John is an American sculptor and artist working working with glass for more than 20 years. Maurice La Rooy works full time to maintain and grow the studio as an artist, educator, and all around worker. Maurice is an artist from the Netherlands who has been working with glass for more than 5 years.
