A French-born, Seattle-based glass artist, Bouchet O'Neill studied at The Danish Design School on the island of Bornholm, Denmark. Her inspiration stems from the exploration of topography, the science that describes a landscape on a two dimensional surface and the idea that each place is unique much like a fingerprint. Armelle uses glass as a vehicle for this exploration, by exploiting its intrinsic optical properties as well as its potential for myriad textures, her work draws from the natural world.
