Mathieu Grodet is a glass artist living and working in Toronto, Canada. Born in Orleans, France, he first studied art at the Visual Art Institute of Orleans before discovering glass in 1999. Grodet’s apprenticed in some of Europe’s leading glass studios. It was here that he fell in love with traditional Venetian techniques which have become the basis for his newest series, the “Wig Wag Bowl”. Mathieu’s work is more than aesthetically pleasing from a form perspective. It makes a statement, sometimes figuratively and sometimes literally. He marries form, function, and decoration in a unique manner that provokes discussion and often inspires debate.
Mathieu Grodet is represented by Sandra Ainsley Gallery, located in Toronto, the leading contemporary glass art gallery in Canada.
