About RedThis dramatic contemporary wall sculpture in tones of red, orange and yellow ochre was created by the glass artist Cheryl Wilson Smith. Inspired by the rugged beauty of her Northern Ontario home, the Canadian artist emulates the form and textures she sees in nature. This small-scale vertical wall piece is made from fine layers of glass frit (ground glass).
“Glass allows me to express myself as a sculptor...the layers I can create with it..the fragility but also the strength.” Cheryl Wilson Smith
She was the 2014 winner of the RBC Award for Glass through the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery. Wilson-Smith has received nine grants from the Ontario Arts Council and one from the Canada Council. Commissions include the Red Lake District Heritage Centre, Margaret Cochenor Memorial Hospital Donor wall. Her work has been exhibited widely across Canada, in the UK and the US.
