The Glass Bakery Ltd Studio Information

The Inspiration

We design from the heart and for the heart.   We celebrate the small things in life that bring a smile and warm the heart: the smell of a wild rose, the morning bird song, the sound of the spring peeper and the moon over the ocean. We're great believers in bringing "nature" indoors, or even take the indoors, outside! 

The Glass Bakery’s fused glass designs evolve from passion and excitement for the magic of wildlife; the relaxing and rejuvenating breath of nature; and beyond all, were inspired by and because of a life-shaping dog whose name was Hudson.

Designs inspired by Nature and motivated by the Heart!

The Birds!

A collectable series of whimsical, happy shoreline and woodland birds.  Each friendly bird ornament is made entirely by the artisan's hand.  The birds, reflecting the moods and whims of the artisan are individual and unique.

Pick a bird you see in your garden at home; the chick that reminds you of a special time, person or place; or the bird that simply draws out a smile!  As each bird reveals their own personality and character, that special one will speak to you, asking to come home!

The Artisan and The Glass

The Glass Bakery™ was established in Nova Scotia in 2010 by British-Canadian Cara Wedgbrow, the director and artisan.

Living in St Margaret's Bay, surrounded by Canadian creativity, possibilities took root. Armed with research skills from a doctorate and a foray into weather forecasting; with her head in the clouds and a good dose of British tenacity, Cara evolved into a designer and artisan of fused glass.

The Glass Bakery designs consist of layers of glass fired for many hours in a specialized kiln.  The glass has been developed exclusively for kiln work.  Only coloured glass is used - no paints or glazes are applied. The colour you see is pure glass.
