Antoon Van Wijk

Education : 1979 -1984
Gerrit Rietveld Academie /  Amsterdam
Monumentale Vormgeving 
Cast Glass ;   pâte de verre

Antoon van Wijk makes his heavy glass objects by himself in his own studio:
I make a sculpture, first in wax, make a mould around the wax sculpture, steam the wax out and put the mould in the oven.
The mould will be filled with glass and colours and cast.
After some weeks of cooling I take glassobject out and clean the sculpture and finish it.

His colourful glassart reminds of a fantasy world, learned by his trips through Asia.
The combination of animals and human beings makes his sculptures to caricatures and are very humoristiccollections:  Stedelijk Museum / Zwolle The Netherlands
                       Glasmuseum / Leerdam
                       Glasmuseum / Hoogeveen
The fantastic glass-sculptures of Antoon van Wijk have also been presented at International Art Fairs like in London, Chicago and Strasbourg,
