About Liat Bassan-Ulmer
Welcome to my website...
I am Liat and creating with glass is my passion.
Born and raised in Jerusalem, I have lived for the past 20 years in picturesque Limburg, the southernmost province of The Netherlands.
Science has always interested me, in particular chemistry, although strangely enough, only glass has rekindled it for experimenting in material, form and color.
A sudden realization that I can create unique art with glass, made me study different aspects of its processing, while experimenting it in my own working place.
The glass I use in the objects I create alternates between opaque and transparent glass. It is frequently combined with other materials, such as metal and wood.
Each piece is unique, mainly through the creative use of artistic geometry, which will not be repeated.
The colorful landscape of my childhood has influenced my artistic style. Creating and having bright colorful objects around me actually connects me back to those colors that are reflected in my art.
The yellow Judea Desert lying at the foot of the dark green mountains of Jerusalem, the crystal blue crisp air, the longing for the cyan Mediterranean sea,
the pure white silence of religious holidays fading into magenta sunset - and the bright, sometimes harsh light of my homeland.
Now, I cordially invite you to explore my exciting new site. Enjoy the experience.
