New Work, new studio

Van Tetterode has moved into an impressive new space in Amsterdam Noord. In February I got a chance to check it out. It’s a huge open space, with high ceilings and offices on the upper floors surrounding a lot of workspace. A great place to blow glass! And of course it’s such an endeavor to…

Making new work at van Tetterode
