David Belian is a talented master artisan that dedicates his life to the art of glass sculpture. In 2000, he graduated from Art Academy in Tilburg, but his studies in the Arts and Crafts field did not end there nor did his passion for glassworks. In 2003, he finished his course in the Secondary School for Applied Arts in Glass, at Zelezny Brod.
Between 2004 and 2008, Belian started working as a freelancer and helping several art studios in Czech, Netherlands and Belgium. In 2007, he created the DAoGlas.
From 2008 to 2009, this glassworker decided to learn even more about his art, so he organized a study trip to Orrefors, KostaBoda in Sweden and visited the Bertil Vallien Studio, Transjo Glasshytan. In that time, he also started working at Hotmarks Glasblazerij in Orvelte.
Traveling seems to be another one of his special interests and that’s why until 2010 he also travelled to Maui in the Big Island of Hawaii and to Portland.
2010 and 2011 were busy years due to David’s work at the Lincoln City Glass center, the Hotmarks Glasblazerij in Orvelte, the Van Tetterode Glass in Amsterdam and the National Glass museum Glasblazerij in Leerdam.
From 2011 to 2012, his work expanded to the Internship Private studio in Makawao on Maui and to Makai Glass, Hailemaile on Maui too.
In 2014, David Belian had the chance to visit San Diego and to blow glass at the SDGlassblowing Sarfeather studio and the ArtHell studio.
Finally, until today his work is focusing more and more in the projects of the National Glass museum in Leerdam and the Van Tetterode in Amsterdam. Don’t miss your chance to admire it.
