Delicate ‘threads’ of glass reminiscent of the gossamer trail of a spider are spun into this elegant vessel by Canadian artist, Julia Reimer. Reimer first studied glass blowing at the Albert College of Art and Design. She 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.
“Glass is a beautiful material when it’s cold. It’s got colour, it’s got composition but it plays with light as well which makes it really unique as an artistic material and it’s like nothing else.” Julia Reimer
