Hello, I’m Kristien Berghs. Currently I’m working on a Master in Art studies at UGent (Belgium), having finished a thesis on pâte de verre. I try to balance all that theory with the practice of a fine arts study (focused on ceramics and glass). I also create jewelry.
I love how materials interact with each other, how natural and manmade processes affect them and what our history is with them, both personal and cultural. This allows me to combine my passion for research and making things with my own hands.
Here I share my projects and work (in progress) and the things that inspire me. Posting new blog posts can be a bit irregular because combining two studies keeps me quite busy, so thanks for your patience!
