Celebrating Winter

I noticed a few years ago after our return from living in Australia how beautiful winter was. I think as artists who work with glass - a material that plays with light, winter is an inspiration, in particular the way ice and snow sparkle and transform the light around us. So when the Canoe Volant & Illuminart festival commissioned us to make a sculpture for their winter festivals our source of inspiration was the beauty of winter. In particular what we wanted to celebrate was how in winter your breath will sparkle and there are these crystals lighting up the most ordinary of things. What interests us artistically are those moments when we stop and see the beauty that surrounds us even the small and everyday.

So as a result our sculpture is titled “Winters Breath” - it will be on display at the Flying Canoe and Illuminart Festivals - here are there websites for more details : https://www.flyingcanoevolant.ca http://experienceilluminart.com
