"Glassblower based right in the heart of Paris, creating elegant, poetic and sensual lights made of handmade glass and brass."
Born in Paris and raised in West Africa, Jeremy Maxwell Wintrebert is a French-American craftsman who has spent over twenty years perfecting freehand glass-blowing techniques that he learned during a cosmopolitan apprenticeship between the United States and Europe alongside the greatest masters from 1998 to 2007. That year, he settled in France, where he divided his time between work in studios and participation in residencies, workshops and conferences. In 2015, within a historic fine artisans’ district in Paris, he opened his own studio where he produces all of his creations.
Mixing passion, creativity, know-how and collaboration within a team in which transmission plays a decisive role, Jeremy Maxwell Wintrebert’s creations are all freehand-blown, without a mold. Elegant, sensual, often colourful and always luminous, they combine tradition, modernity and anticipation, and remain inhabited by the movement that formed them. In all their radiance, these unique works reflect multiple facets of glass and its creative potential, drawing from creative freedom, the time to experiment, and a forward-looking inventiveness developed in a spirit of independence and boldness.
