Gilles Payette Biography

A native of Granby, Quebec, I first trained in sculpture at the L’Ecole de Sculpture de Saint-Jean-Port-Joli in 1970.  I later studied foundry art, working especially with cast bronze and aluminium.

 

The next step was choosing to specialize in glassmaking, a medium which I have used since 1990.  My training in glass pouring was completed through several study sessions and internships in various countries.

 

My company Verre coulé du Quebec inc. was founded in 1996.  My production, which is varied, includes one-of-a-kind pieces, corporate gifts and short runs.

 

My work is found in private and public collections in Quebec and throughout Canada, the United States and Europe.
