Patrick Primeau was born in Montreal in 1974. After a visit of a glass studio that ignites his imagination, he enlisted in the Espace Verre technical program. That was in 1997. Following his studies, Primeau worked for various workshops in Canada, the United States and will spend a year in Marseilles, where he worked at the prestigious Centre International de Recherche sur les arts Verriers (CIRVA). Back in Montreal in 2004 , he co-founded with Caroline Ouellette, Welmo glass studio. His innovative designs inspired by Venetian techniques have earned him, among other things, a place in the collection of Montreal Fine Arts Museum and the Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec. His pieces are also found in several private collections.
