Inspired by nature, these gorgeous glass spheres are created by Julia Reimer. The Alberta glass blower is known for her unique designs and meticulous detail. Light shines through the three tabletop sculptures—one smaller than the other illuminating the interior and accentuating the detail of several small spheres (seeds?) inside each ball.
“Glass is a beautiful material when it’s cold. It’s got colour, it’s got composition.” 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.
