ABOUT

After receiving my teaching degree, I decided to go back to school in order to follow my dream of becoming a professional glassblower. I studied glass for seven years at Espace Verre to develop my craft. During that time I taught primary school to support my education and studio fees. I also travelled for an entire year in New Zealand where I wanted to learn more about the Roll-Up technique and management of an artisanal glass business. I already determined that I wanted to blow glass without having to use the traditional furnace because of the energy costs associated with it. I opted to follow my passion by modifying traditional glass work techniques with a more sustainable way of producing glass art. This is how after graduating from glass art and craft school in 2012, I started Boutiverre, a sustainable business which creates beautiful home decor and fashion pieces from different bottles. Everything from Boutiverre is made from 100% recycled glass. Today, Boutiverre's main production is customized lamps.

I have been fortunate to have been selected two years in a row to be part of a scholarship program financed by Espace Verre, la Caisse de la Culture and la Société de Development de Entreprise Culturelle du Québec, to help me start my business. Since then, I have participated at many shows such as le Salon des Métiers d'Art du Québec à Montréal and in Quebec city. I have developed three websites and exhibiting / selling in 25 boutiques across Canada, including my own in Knowlton, Quebec.

PRIMARY MATERIALS

Made from 100% recycled glass (beer, wine or water bottles). Each piece is hand blown and reshaped to create a unique yet functional design.

SHIPPING POLICY

Since Boutiverre's creations are mostly custom, the process may take 2-8 weeks if I don't have your exact order in stock.
