BIOGRAPHY

Claude Morin, leader of the Studio Glass movement in France, develops since the 1970s a production of glass objects made in an artisanal way in Dieulefit (Drôme).
After studying engineering, Claude Morin decided to turn to the craft, he still hesitates between ceramics and glass. If pottery is the traditional production in Dieulefit, he decides, despite this, to become a glassmaker. These creations can be admired nowadays at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris.
