Reminiscent of the gorgeous patterns that ice can form on a winter’s day, Cheryl Wilson-Smith has sculpted this remarkable piece. The rugged beauty of her northern Ontario home inspires the glass artist to emulate textures and forms found in nature. Square pieces of fine white glass frit (ground glass) are layered to create this elegantly curved table-top sculpture.
“My sculptures, the gossamer fine yet intrinsically strong structures become an active receptacle for interpretations of time and lasting memory. A place for quiet contemplation.” Cheryl Wilson Smith
She was the 2014 winner of the RBC Award for Glass through the Canadian Clay and Glass. 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.
