We are so happy to announce that Trollbeads Artist Scott Bouwens will also be attending our Bead Exchange and Artisan Party on Ocotber 10th! He'll have a lot of his stunning lamp work available at the party! Don't miss out on your opportunity to attend this event!
Scott Bouwens, Trollbeads’ US Designer, has been practicing the art of lampwork glass beads since 1998. In addition to being a bead maker, Scott is also an inventor, toolmaker, instructor, videographer, and photographer. Scott’s glasswork and tools have been featured in various publications, and he has won many honors for his work.
Scott became a Trollbeads designer with the release of the Rocky Beach Kit, featured in the 2013 Spring collection. Scott primarily uses Effetre glass, and is known for the bright yet earthy hues he creates from using fine silver leaf accents in his beads. Today, Scott and his wife run a retail studio gallery in La Conner, WA, where they create, display and sell their works of art. Scott studied Landscape Design and Communications at Washington State University in the late 80’s, early 90’s.
"I am an inventor/hobbyist at heart and have always enjoyed tinkering with new ideas. As a child used to take apart my toys or equipment and then put them back together. I enjoy the challenge of figuring out how things work. My love of science, outer space (seen in my Space Gems and Galaxy Beads), and art come together nicely for me in this field. I especially enjoy making multi-bead glass sculptures and plan to lean my work in that direction. My pieces range in size from the very small to large and intricate. Some are poseable and invite interaction. All have their own personality” –Scott Bouwens
