Return in Spring

May 8, 2013 - 3:22 pm

We are back home from our Australian adventure and loving the beautiful Alberta spring weather. Our last four months there were full of great experiences and accomplishments. Tyler has completed his masters in visual art and Julia was an artist in residence at the renowned Canberra Glassworks. For both of us this time was incredibly creative and productive and we have returned home with new ideas and many plans. We will be busy this spring participating in a glass symposium at the Alberta College of Art and Design and a group exhibition, “Assembly of Light” at Endeavor Arts Gallery
 I hope you can join us for this event. The studio will also be busy with two beginner glassblowing workshops in May & June and we are creating a custom annual award for the Rozsa Foundation. On a more international level Tyler’s work will be featured in an exhibition at the South Australia School of Art Gallery and we have both been published in an Australian magazine Craft Arts International. To have this recognition of our work on both a local and international level is something we are quite pleased about.
The studio is open for visits and tours by appointment and we have some new pieces available here at the studio for wedding/ birthday and hostess gifts. Please give us a call or send us an email if you would like to stop by the studio. I have attached an images of Tyler’s masters exhibition, other images can also be found on our facebook page.

Artist Residency at the Canberra Glassworks

April 21, 2013 - 7:32 pm

I ( Julia) have spent the past month as an artist in residence at the Canberra Glassworks. What an amazing facility! I was lucky enough to have the time to work like a mad scientist experimenting with what glass will let me do , and it turns out it will do a lot! I have some great test pieces, knowledge of new processes and I feel inspired by the artists I met and worked with there. Here are some images of some of my tests and the space I worked in.
