signature
Almost all pieces are unique. The signature of Martine Knoppert consists of a letter M and a K (rotated) in a square.
Below the square ‘10 (in 2010). In recent years I have been numbering per object under the square, for example: 1620 is the 20th signed object from 2016.
Jewelry and polished pieces are not always signed.

COLLABORATION
I usually make my glass pieces myself. Occasionally I outsource the making of a steel frame.
Since I engraved, there has been an exception to this rule. A number of grails were blown by skilled colleagues in that area. Read more about it:
Stories around Grails (in Dutch).
