Bert Sterk

Glass plays an important role in Bert’s life. Born and raised in the vicinity of glasscity Leerdam, he has worked there for a large part of his life at the Glass Factory and after education at the Glass Art Academy in Antwerp (Belgium), he started to apply glass in a creative way. The technique he used is mold melting (glass casting) or pouring glass into sand (sand casting). The “skin” created on the image by the impression of the mold or the sand, gives the image a diffuse light transmission, which makes the use of glasses attractive. The glass portraits often depict human dialogue, sometimes an internal dialogue, sometimes unattainable for others. The images are combined with tightly blown glass or with stranded rope/wood that has been affected by the natural elements. The representation of his personal emotions or experience of what comes on his way in daily life, makes the word unique but also recognizable.
