Julia Reimer’s elegant original glass work brings the ancient art of glass blowing into modern day. Fine threads of glass are deftly spun to create this series of beautiful bowls. This piece is rendered in the colour of Caribbean water—aqua.
“Glass is so gorgeous—the way it plays with light, it is like no other material.” Julia Reimer
She first studied glass blowing at the Albert College of Art and Design. Reimer has since exhibited across Canada and internationally in Australia, South Korea, Scotland and the US. For her elegant sensibility, Reimer received the inaugural National Award for Glass from the RBC and Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery in 2008. She has received grants and scholarships from the Canada Council and the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and was artist in residence at the University of South Australia, Northlands in Scotland and in New York at the Corning Museum of Glass -- to name just two. Julia Reimer is the co-owner of ‘Firebrand,’ a glass studio in the foothills of Alberta.
