Charlie Larouche discovered glass in 2017 when he arrived at Espace Verre. During his studies, he developed a deep passion for working with blown glass.
"In order to grow as an artist, I enter into an intimate relationship with the material with the goal of getting to know it. Glass is alive; by engaging this relationship with the molten material, I learn its flaws, qualities and preferences. I engage in a conversation with glass by making cups inspired by Venetian traditions. These delicate objects, made for centuries on the island of Murano, demonstrate all the whims and virtues of the material. Each irregularity in the shape, proportions and manufacturing process of these cups, testifies to a learning process in the making, to a new way of interacting with glass. They are evidence of this relationship that evolves and grows with me over time, a conversation that will one day seal my union with the material."
