This beautiful glass object is designed en executed by Willem Heesen. After a career in design at the Glasfabriek Leerdam (Leerdam Glassworks), Willem Heesen (1925-2007) began a glass studio, De Oude Horn (The Old Horn). From here, he developed into one of the first free glass artists. His poetic work was often inspired by the river and landscape that surrounded him. His unique glass objects communicate his fascination with underwater life and the influence of the seasons and the weather on the landscape. His works, that go by names such as 'Wuivend riet' (Waveing Reeds) and 'Waaiende boomtoppen' (Swaying Treetops) are characterised by organic forms, serenity and an authentic use of colors. The work of Willem Heesen can be found in the collections of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, and many other museums across the globe.
