Michael Trimpol and Monique LaJeunesse
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.
