Vancouver Christmas Market

We were excited to be apart of the very first Vancouver Christmas Market, a German inspired outdoor daily event for everyone to enjoy. The traditional outdoor wooden huts, festive drinks (some with alcohol!), delicious food, amazing live music, and of course, live glass demonstrations on the stage every Wednesday!
The Vancouver Christmas Market started November 29 and went until December 24. We are so happy that we were apart of such a spectacular event and can't wait for this year's Christmas season.

This Moment of Clarity

"This Moment of Clarity" is my third Organic shaped custom lighting project. Over 200 clear pieces of glass hang off a flameworked glass structure. I named the piece "This Moment of Clarity" because of the way the light bounces off the clear glass creating amazing clarity and depth within the piece.

I started this project in January 2010 and finished it March 2010.

Check out all the twists and turns in this very detailed piece.

This project is available for purchase and is currently on display at my East Vancouver studio.
To make an appointment for viewing or for pricing information please email or call us at 778-288-4610
