The glass artist

  • • John designs abstract creations in stained glass
  • • He can integrate stained glass into double-glazing
  • • He loves the sparkle in the eyes of his clients

John Dierickx’s love for stained glass came about rather by accident. Working at a glass company fuelled his fascination with stained glass. He started to experiment with it after his regular working hours. Step by step, he built his own network of clients, and in 1991 he founded his company Artglas. In 2009, he moved the company to a new building with a showroom of a 100 square metres. “Over the years, I have specialised in abstract creations consisting of straight and curved lines. With these designs we make a difference to our clients . Whilst previously people just expected a perfect execution, nowadays they want to be a part of the design process, thinking with you to create a unique design.”

Barvaux

This blue glass dome was designed and manufactured for a private home. The bottom of the dome features sunflowers that radiate through with the help of the sun. The flowers refer to France and a telephone box hidden among them refers to the United Kingdom. The design bridges classical forms and techniques with contemporary designs.

Brussels

The space under these stairs of an old home in Brussels was opened to provide extra light. John Dierickx was commissioned to design and create a stained glass window for this opening. The geometric forms and bold colours of the design respect the Art Nouveau aesthetic of the building.
