Griet Beyaert

art installations / sculptural glass / art+science collaborations / sound explorations

Here features the work of glass artist Griet Beyaert. Whilst using glass as her main medium Griet's work is undergoing a clear shift towards art installations, art/science and other collaborations and sound explorations.

She currently works from her studio in Leeds, UK run by East Street Arts. 

Griet gained her MA in Glass at the National Glass Center, Sunderland, UK. She has since exhibited at the International Glass Biennale in Stourbridge and SOFA New York amongst other places and she has added one of her pieces to an important glass collection in the North East of England.
