Precious memory made of glass
This past summer we celebrated a 60th birthday by spending five days in Kelowna and filling them with wonderful activities and new experiences. On our list of 60 things to do was create an art piece. After doing a little research I decided on fused glass with Annemarie. None of us had done it before and with Annemarie’s patience and instruction, we all created a beautiful memory of a special event. Personally I am hooked! I can’t wait to return and learn more about fused glass and create more glass art. Thank you Annemarie!”
First time working with glass
I visited Annemarie's studio last summer when I was travelling through Kelowna and created my very first glass dish. I had never worked with glass before and she was an excellent teacher. It was totally hands on: you do all your own cutting and shaping, you get to choose whatever colours and different types of glass that you want, you get to be totally free and Annemarie helps you if you get stuck or can't decide what to do next. I created a 10" plate that I have displayed in my window. I love how the light shines through it and I can't wait to go back next time I am in the Okanagan. My next plate will be even more experimental! Thank you Annemarie!” Murray L.
Annemarie, thank you for teaching me how to bring out my inner artist. You are so patient and kind and I always enjoy being in your shop and creating my tiny pieces of fused glass jewellery. I like how I get to use tools. This is a new thing for me and it's really quite fun. There is so much more to your studio than just fusing glass. It's like learning to be a little bit handy too. I look forward to the next session.” Courtenay P.
Hello Annemarie I am a friend of Kevin's. He came to visit in December and brought a gift. It is the yellow dish with pink and lime pieces. What a stunning piece. It sits beneath a small lamp so that it glows and radiates your energy. I have looked at your website a number of times now... and I am in awe of your work. Spiritually beautiful, grounded yet magical, and exquisite. What a wonderful present."
