Glass is his ultimate source of inspiration. The creations are sometimes rough and simple in form, sometimes stylistic, but often colourful and playful with a typical touch of character
For a quarter of a century Patrick Van Tilborgh is already infected by the glass microbe. After a technical training, he began to experiment with glass.
He followed a seven-year glass course at the IKA (Instituut voor Kunst en Ambachten) in Mechelen under the direction of Koen Vanderstukken and Miloslava Svobodova. He has his own glass studio and a mobile glass studio to realise his own creations and organise glass demonstrations, events and workshops.
Patrick has an inner urge to work with glass in an uninhibited way. Glass intrigues him because it results always in such a complex adventure. It always provides new experimental and artistic challenges. Glass is his ultimate source of inspiration to create new objects every time.
The passion of this glass artist is clearly reflected in his works of art. Sometimes they are rough and simple in form, sometimes rather stylistic, but often also colourful and playful with a typical touch of character, typical for Patrick Van Tilborgh.
