Custom Awards

Here is a link a blog and video for some awards we created for the Rural Heath Professions Action Plan. You can tell by the quality of the video and the blog, these were a great group of people to work with. Sometimes people are surprised when we say that we love doing custom work and working collaboratively with clients, there is this idea that as an artist we are only interested in creating pieces that express our ideas. The thing is that although we love making work about what inspires us, we also get great ideas from other people. The other thing I love about making awards is that you get to be a part of celebrating someone wonderful accomplishments.

Custom Pieces

We love doing custom pieces, it is a chance to work directly with clients to design a piece that suits their needs. These pieces range from lighting that fits a certain space to memorial pieces that incorporate the ashes of a loved one. Recently we made a decanter and spinning goblets with "Dexters" ashes with colour that matched his fur. With these pieces his family can remember him with toasts to a wonderful dog.

Art for Science

We have  some exciting news to share. In February we were selected by the Royal Tyrell Museum to create models of prehistoric spores for a new exhibition.  We love doing commission work and this project was a great experience, we were able to look at specimens through microscopes with paleontologist Dennis Brammen. Blown glass seems to be the perfect medium to express the aesthetic of these ancient plant forms. It was amazing to work on project that characterized the bridge between art and science- research, experimentation and innovation. Here are some images of the pieces, photos of the specimens and drawings - the process from start to finish.
