For more than thirty years, Frank van den Ham has been working full-time with glass. During that time he has taught many workshops in over twenty countries.
Frank is often described as an artist who makes different worlds recognizable and aims to connect them. His fascination with Africa, the Far East, and his Dutch roots mark him as a traveller between worlds, someone always in search of the additional, the complementary, always in search of home. This homesickness for "there" infuses his objects with dramatic dimensions of tension and warmth. Van den Ham’s colorful, poetic compositions in glass—sometimes combined with other materials like wood, fabric, and silver—offer deep insight into his makerly thoughts and dreams.
His pieces are exhibited all over the world and can be found in many museums and private collections.
