” I am constantly searching for ways to understand how we as humans interact with each other. I have come to realize that glassblowing aids me with this in that I can visualize these interactions in the products I make, and more importantly in the process I follow where I invite people to be a part of the glass forming process. The path I am exploring now is very much set into working with “captured moments”. Using photography and decal techniques I can essentially place an object in time, and give it a nostalgic direction or place it in an associative context. The idea of using images in glass has so many different avenues and is still relatively rare in the glassblowing community. I aim to delve into this technique.” Frederik Rombach, Borgerhout 2018
