Maarten Vrolijk is a multi-disciplinary creative working in glass, ceramic, and textile art. The Amsterdam-based artist and designer's aesthetic language is unique for its conscious play with shape, color, and material in an uncontrived way. His life-long fascination with florals and their vibrant colors continues is fully conveyed in his new hot formed glass works and hand-built ceramics. There is a sense of pure joy and expressionistic instinct in each piece that draws the viewer into the artist's worldview.
Maarten's work has been collected and exhibited in several international museums including the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Groninger Museum.
