Native of two continents, France and Quebec, Anne Donze and Vincent Changon enrich their experiences on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. They participated to several exhibitions in France and also in Canada. Finalists of the ESGAA glassprize in 2011, their first collaborations were acquired by the museum of glass of Carmaux.
Vincent, glass blower since 2002, learned glass at Espace Verre in Montreal, Quebec. After his classes, he worked in several hotshops in Quebec. Vincent won a prize “young talents in art profession” and “ferryboat of the arts of Brouage”. He also obtained two grant of the Society of development of the cultural companies of Quebec. Always searching new glass techniques, he worked in the West Canada and at The United States. Then, he turned to Europe, where he worked on Novy Bor in Czech Republic as well as in several hotshops in France. His numerous experiences gave him a panoramic vision to the approach to the glass. He teaches this material to the High School of the Arts of the Rhin of Strasbourg since 2014.
Anne multiplied the experiences, at the CERFAV of Vannes-le-Châtel in particular, but also in Barcelona where she obtained in 2004 the upper diploma of “the arts decorative contemporary jewel” awarded by the school Massana. She can be proud of 3 acquisition of glass sculptures, “penetrations”, by the museum of glass Ernsting Stiftung, Coesfeld in Germany. Anne won the first prize of the contemporary jewel “Entreprise Swarovski” in 2004.
