Bibi Smit

Bibi Smit’s glass art is inspired by the patterns, rhythms and colors of nature. She enjoyed sketching as a child and later became interested in watercolors. Like a watercolor, hot glass seems to be alive when it flows, moves and emits light. The artist explains: “The piece needs to have a movement in it. It needs to be alive, it needs to convey a message, or a thought or a feeling to another person. It is like wind; you don’t see wind but you see what wind does. Everything is moving, nothing is static. And that is, for me, the essence of life.” Bibi Smit’s love for detail and for her technique is evident in the control she exerts over all processes, both in the hot and the cold phases of the work. Her work is held in private and public collections, including the National Museums of Scotland (UK), and National Glass Museum Leerdam (NL).
