Glass Cramer was founded by Kirsten, born a Cramer girl, but now also Mrs Alferink.
Creating glass for me is a pure expression of who I am and how I experience the world;
quirky, colorful, sometimes stilled.
Born out of fascination with the beautiful windows in old buildings, I started with a Stained glass course
at Robert-Paul Sprenkeling of Stained Glass Groningen, and then learned Tiffany
from Jacob Bonder at Glasatelier Bonder.
In the following years, I have developed the knowledge and practice of this fascinating material abroad,
educated by Mark Stine (USA), and studied the techniques of Vicky Payne (USA).
Having been allowed to follow a year of Glass Art at the Academy of Antwerp Merksem, given by Marleen Lippenveld, we decided to return to our homeland when we had the chance to turn a beautiful historic farmhouse into our home. Here we have space for a boutique hotel in the future, and established Glass Cramer.
