In 2003 I began this business through my creativity and ingenuity. I couldn't find answers to my many questions when I started my journey working with glass so I went with the trial and error method. I certainly never expected to create a new artwork that did not previously exist. Shoot forward 16 years and the evolution of what I started doing and what I do now is how you grow as an artist.

Why We’re One of a Kind

Glass is an unique product that requires so much technical skill that making 2 pieces exactly the same is virtually impossible. So while every piece can be similar, there is always a difference from one piece to the other. We can never replicate with a machine, each piece is individually created.

Primary Materials

All my pieces are made of glass that is cut by hand, layered with more glass then fired in a kiln that is designed specifically for glass. Some pieces only require one 5-6 hour firing with 24 hours to cool, but several products require 2-3 firings that could take up to 18 hours and 24 hours to cool.

Shipping Policy

We ship all small pieces by Canada Post as it is the most affordable and reliable. The larger pieces require different care and attention. We can give quotes for what the shipping will add to the cost of the piece.
