Rombachs Glass is a Public access waste glass studio run by Artist Frederik Rombach. Frederik Rombach was born in Leuven, Belgium. At 4 years the family left for Johannesburg, South Africa where Frederik grew up untill his 14th. Then the family moved to the Netherlands. Frederik went to school and college where he obtained his civil engineering degree. From his 17th year onwards Frederik left to travel and work spending time living and working in San Diego California with renowned artist James Hubbell and his son Drew Hubbell. Frederik spent a year in Mexico travelling and working teaching english in exchange for spanish lessons. Returning to the Netherlands he studied architecture for a number of years in Amsterdam. During his studies his work shifted to theatre where he worked with composers and dancers a number of times, twice in collaboration with Paul Oomen for the prestegious Oerol festival. Frederik took on a number of small commissions for Alberts and van Huut in Amsterdam before moving to Arnhem where he joined the artists colony KW37. Here he lived and worked from a gypsy wagon for a number of years. Since then Frederik moved to Antwerp where he opened a shop for his glass products. Throughout 5 years Frederik has been working on selling recycled glass products and realizing social artistic projects in the public domain with glass as well as mosaics. Now the time has come to move to working primarily with molten glass, to travel the world working with a specific set of tools, setting up collaborations and working on a social artistic level with as many people and craftsmen as possible, as well as delving into work with more personal thoughts.
