Price : € 595,-

Melt paintings Chartres: as church windows stained, so are these glass sculptures melt painted. On a base of reinforced glass is a composite colour glass melted. No two sculptures are the same, but they are all vital like a painting from the Cobra art school.Willem van Oyen Senior had a small factory that produced these lamps for Raak Amsterdam, known as “BEVO glasindustrie“. They are all handmade and therefore slightly different. The Bevo company still exist today and is now owned by his son, Willem van Oyen Junior. These large brutalist wall lamps were inspired by the stained glass windows of the famous Chartres Cathedral in France, also known as the Cathedral of Our Lady of Chartres, about 80 kilometres (50 mi) south-west of Paris.
