Jochen Holz

Jochen Holz, born in Germany, is a glass artist whose innovative employment of lampworking–a form of glassblowing used primarily to make scientific equipment–is repurposing the technique in the art world. Indeed, whilst he has received training in scientific lampworking, Holz has chosen to practice it creatively, a radical departure from its traditional usage which positions him as one of the only people working in his field in the UK. His work with neon is similarly original. Examining the possibilities of sculptural lighting, he bypasses the conventional thin, wall-mounted lamps and opts instead for thick borosilicate glass tubing to create free-standing 3D shapes and immersive light installations.
