Description Filigree Spirit Fruit is a unique freehand blown glass sculpture by the French-American artist Jeremy Maxwell Wintrebert. This piece is all about its beautiful form, a simple soft lilac is used to showcase the undulations and movement of the glass. As the glass thickens, the hue intensifies to exaggerate the fruit's opening. Also trapped within the glass, is fine filigree canes of glass in darker purples and blues, a truly mesmerising artwork.

Jeremy Maxwell Wintrebert (born in 1980 in Paris, where he lives and works) is a French-American craftsman who has spent over twenty years perfecting freehand glass-blowing techniques that he learned during a cosmopolitan apprenticeship between the United States and Europe from 1998 to 2007. That year, he settled in Paris, where he divided his time between work in studios and participation in residencies, workshops and conferences. In 2015, within a historic fine artisans’ district in Paris, he opened his first studio where he produces all of his creations.

Mixing passion, creativity, know-how and collaboration within a team in which transmission plays a decisive role, Jeremy Maxwell Wintrebert’s creations are all freehand-blown, without a mold. Elegant, sensual, often colorful and always luminous, they combine tradition, modernity and anticipation, and remain inhabited by the movement that formed them.

Wintrebert has exhibited extensively around the globe and completed many commissions, sculptural and lighting installations for many high-end hotels, restaurants and luxury brands.

In his own words:

"Glass became my passion from the first minute I saw molten glass. It looked so hot, sexy, dangerous, technical and a real challenge. My pieces do not have a precise point of departure, but they have the same “spirit” – I create my work using intuition and let myself be guided as much by words as by things: 'factory', 'organic', 'intensity', 'fruit' and 'orgasm' are some of the words and themes that inform my work and through which I imagine different combinations".
