Bart Rentmeester

Sinds 2008 ben ik na een korte carriere als kok eigenaar van glasatelier 't ouwe glas'uus. Samen met mijn vader ontwerpen en maken we in ons atelier glas in lood en glazen gedenktekens.

Daarnaast ben actief bezig met het maken van glaskunst. Het bewerken van glas, vooral in zijn vloeibare vorm heeft iets magisch, dat vloeibare moment te gebruiken om glas te bewerken blijft een uitdaging waarbij je jezelf steeds blijft ontwikkelen en de rand van het haalbare blijft opzoeken. Hierdoor creeer ik steeds nieuwe ideen en blijven de mogelijkheden groeien.
