Michael Behrens Portrait 2017-1.jpg

Behrens produces all artworks in his studio in Düsseldorf in his custom-built furnaces. Each piece undergoes several complex production phases: The sculptural work begins with a rigid foam model, the production of the melting molds, the arrangement of pre-processed glass pieces in the melting mold, the actual melting and cooling processes as well as the finish by grinding, polishing and/or sandblasting. The production of a single sculpture usually takes several months.
