At once elegant and original in design, the modern glass pieces made by Julia Reimer play with light. The Canadian artist’s work is made from delicate blown glass threads that are meticulously spun into light filled bowls. This piece is rendered in cerulean blue. One of a series.
“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.
