Caroline, from l’atelier Boutiverre, has been blowing glass for over 15 years. After obtaining a DEC in glass art at Cégep du Vieux-Montréal, she did an apprenticeship in New Zealand, and quickly made the switch to recycled glass, a material that is totally in line with her philosophy of sustainable development. She breathes new life into bottles by transforming them into new objects with simple shapes to which she adds texture with natural materials such as water and wood ash. The resulting product is warm, and fits into both modern and rural settings. In 2015 she set up her workshop-boutique in the heart of the village of Lac Brome in the Eastern Townships. She welcomes people who are curious and sensitive to art, who wish to acquire unique items, handcrafted and tailor-made with care.
