Glass-maker and smelter


Carole is passionate about glass. She works with the glass cold in sheet form, then melts it in a glassmaker's kiln at over 800° to produce a range of products like cufflinks, rings and lamps.

She has combined glassmaking with smeltering to design and make her DAMLA luminous collection design which you can see below. She has registered the design with INPI.

“Discover my unique pieces made from this sublime material, so full of contradiction: hard and fragile, hurtful and protective, soft and sharp, opaque and luminous, cold and hot, but still ethereal, poetic, sensual and radiant... GLASS.”
