After graduating in Holland in Fashion Design, Aline worked in Italy for many companies such as Fiorucci and Benetton. On moving to England she felt moved to translate her fascination for colour, pattern and surface texture into a new medium and so she studied Architectural Glass at Central St Maritn's School of Art and Design, London. Her inspiration is fuelled byher infinity for the Jurassic coat of Dorset where she spends a lot of time. The Vibrant palette of Beach Stripes on Windbreaks and deckchairs translates with easeinot the bright platters of fused glass. The natural beauty of the pebbles, the textures of the sand and the spiralling forms of ammonites are used to create texture in the glass. The sparkling translucency, the fluidity and the ever-changing colour-palette of the sea have immediate relevance to working with kiln-formed glass and provide an infinate source of inspiration.

From her studio at Cockpit Arts, Aline designs and fabricates architectural glass panels to commission for residential and public use. Translating her architectural glasswork into kiln-formed studio glass (decorative platters and wall-lights) has proved to be successful, selling through galleries in London, Dorset and Devon.
Her inspiration is fuelled by her affinity for the Dorset coastline where she spends some of her time. The linear loud beach stripes on windbreaks and deckchairs translate beautifully into bright striped platters of fused glass. The natural beauty of the pebbles, sand and ammonites are used directly in moulds for slumping glass. The sparkling translucency and fluidity of the sea has immediate relevance to working with kiln-formed glass and proves to be an endless source of inspiration/ideas.
One of her aims for the future is to collaborate with interior designers and architects to incorporate her glass designs on a wider scale.
Studio visits are welcome.
On the architetural glass I do house visits in London to visit the site an talk through the client's brief, accordingly I'll produce samples in Glass and/ or sketches. ( I will charge £100- for intial visit an dproduction of sketches and samples plus travel expenses.)
For Tableware I usually work to the client's colour brief. For lighting I am willing to produce glass samples for approval, depending on the size of the commssion.
