Glass for me is a discovery tour. The possibilities are infinite. Hardness and vulnerability two contrary properties linked to this material. The game of light on glass and the influence off its surroundings ensure a contantly changing picture.
Jacob Bos, (Leeuwarden 27 - 07 - 1963)
My fascination for drawing was encouraged by my grandfather. He was a farmer, and loved horses. When I was a little boy I sat by him at the kitchen table. On a peace off paper he good draw a horse in several positions. He had an eye for the beauty of this noble animal. The pleasure I found in drawing became larger in the years. Oil painting, also black and white photography formed an eye for detail and composition. After my architectural education, I wend to the army. As a trainings-instructor, I gained that judgment of character. After my time as soldier, I sought for work. By the department of employment, I did a choice of career test. And I was offered on basis of my drawings a training period by a local Painter “Rob Hessels”. The plan of this was to combine this with a study at the art academy. It has gone otherwise. I got a job offer for assistant-head of department. And in the meantime I followed several management studies. I remained committed to this firm for eighteen years.
It didn’t give me the satisfaction I wanted so I chose for my talent. My fascinations for glass is actually developed through coincidence. A challenge has brought me to engrave on glass. That challenge I took up.
