Catherine Benoit was born in the late 70s in Quebec, Canada. When I was eight years-old, I got mesmerized watching a glassblower at work; it was magic to my eyes, and I totally fell in love with the medium…for life!My scholar road navigate different artistic mediums until I discovered and completed the three-year glass art program at Espace VERRE in 2002. For over 20 years, I have passionately created glass sculptures and decorative pieces. In my developmental quest, I started a new path by combining my two favorites glasswork techniques in a lyrical motion; a poetic juxtaposition involving hotshop and casting work. If glassblowing is a more intense and fast beat dance in which you must know all the steps, casting is a more peaceful and introspective one, together in harmonious fusion they create a unique piece.\ The pieces I have submitted are the blossoming of those years of research on the coupling of glass casting and glass blowing. The first step is to create a glass casting with the lost wax technique. Thereafter, I will re-fire the polish casting in the hot shop and blow a hot bubble of glass into it. I believe glass work is perfectly suited for my vivacious and colorful personality, it allows me to put passion and joie de vivre into all of my creations, as I see myself as a glass poet that creates one-of-a-kind songs.
