Floris Meydam (1919 – 2011) is one of the most important glass artists in the Netherlands. Born and raised in Leerdam, his name is irrevocably linked to the Leerdam Glassworks. At the age of 16, he began work here as an assistant in the design department, which was then led by Andries Copier. Copier founded the Glass School in Leerdam during the Second World War. The purpose of this school was to nurture artistic talent and craftsmanship for the Glass Factory, in an in-house setting. Floris Meydam was among the very first students of the Glass School.
