Using traditional techniques, Michael Trimpol and Monique LaJeunesse capture the dynamic properties of molten glass in clean, spare designs with their handmade pieces created in their Vermont studio.

Michael Trimpol began his career as a glassblower in 1983 at the Sheridan College School of Craft & Design in Mississauga, Ontario after completing studies for a BFA at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec. He continued to refine his skills by participating in and hosting glass workshops with leading glass artists from around the world such as Lino Tagliapietra, Sonja Blomdahl, Simon Moore, Bill Gudenrath and Josh Simpson.

Monique LaJeunesse achieved an Honors BFA (History) from the University of Guelph and a certificate in the History of Fine and Decorative Arts from Christie's, London.

      I gave this to my mother-in-law for Christmas; she thought it was very pretty. I wish I could go into more detail, but I haven't actually seen it because she lives in a different state.

        This item was larger than what I thought it would be - which is nice. It is a super pretty item than can be displayed in a variety of places. Great gift idea!

          A beautiful item that I purchased for my aunt. It was larger than I thought it would be but that's a good thing. The colors were beautiful! I think she will display it in her kitchen or dining room window where there is a lot of light.

              So colorful and beautiful in a sunny window.
              Brings smiles to all who see it.
              Especially wonderful in the gray, winter months.

              This is a lovely piece, but is not as bright as in the photo unless it is in direct light. It doesn't come with any type of hanging accessory. It also seems a little too fragile.

              Nevertheless, this is a nice design, and looks great in a window. When the light does catch it, it looks simply amazing. I recommend it for a smaller window,it definitely stands out.

                This is a beautiful piece and a bargain for the quality. Just a note, the picture shows an oval for the green but it is a circle as you can tell from the given measurements.
