Novaro, Jean-Claude

Jean-Claude Novaro was a master among masters in glass art.

From his studio in Biot, France, Jean-Claude creates glass art that is pure and unique. His expressionistic work is at the forefront of an international phenomenon that continues to cross all borders worldwide. The lyrical beauty of Jean-Claude's glass intrigues his audience with it's liquidity, transparency, refractive and reflective powers. It's appeal is both as a sculptural object and as an original art form. Novaro mixes a technical virtuosity with artistic creation.

Born in 1943, Novaro went to Biot at an early age to begin his study and career in glass. At the age of 20, Novaro was considered a Maitre Verrier (master of glass). He continues his studies in Paris, where he spends time investigating the versatility of glass, absorbing all the various techniques available, internalizing the information and allowing it to emerge as a new approach that has set him apart from his contemporaries.

Glass is a mysterious art form that ties the artist to the elementary powers of nature. The glass worker plays and fights with the fires but the art that emerges from this fight is light, fragile and transparent.

The mystery of glass; it's historical legacy and it's decorative powers attract and hold an ever-growing worldwide audience. Novaro's creative glass art is part of the new wave of interest sweeping the world. His work reflects his years of technical and aesthetic research. He mixes transparency and opacity intertwining colored glass with other mediums.

Novaro's work can be found in museums and collections all over the world. His most enthusiastic collectors are Bill Cosby, Elton John and Barbara Sinatra.
