GLASSWORK

During a trip to New Orleans I noticed the work of a number of artists that had incorporated broken pieces of glass and porcelain. Always wanting to learn a new technique and discover new ways to “reduce, reuse, and recycle” I was able to take a quick class that showed me the very basics of this technique. Bringing my new knowledge home with me, I set to work to learn more about using broken glass in my art. It took me fourteen months to complete my initial trial and I was thrilled with the results. All of the exposed glass is sanded and sharp edges are removed, making this a very time consuming process. Living in one of Canada’s wine regions gave me the inspiration to create wine based pieces, but I’m thinking that this may change in the future.
