Shore & Garden Birds

The Glass Bakery

Cara Wedgbrow is the director and artisan behind The Glass Bakery™.  The Glass Bakery creates solid, durable glasswork from layers of glass, topped with sand-like grains of powdered glass “frit”.

The designs are drawn from a fondness and affinity for wildlife, and a life inestimably shaped by a dog affectionately called “H”.

The Glass Bakery designs and crafts an identifiable collection of textured or translucent patterned decorative accents, tableware, and glass tiles and panels. Maritime and Nature are strong design themes in the glass, and The Glass Bakery is most well-known for its shorebird and backyard bird ornaments. All designs are made using coloured "fusing" glass - no paints or glazes!!

Designs are the intellectual property of The Glass Bakery Ltd, Copyright 2010 - 2018. Discussions about commissioning art-work or memorial glass are welcomed. 

“ we were delighted to gift local Nova Scotian artistry to our Senior leadership and Board of Advisors for a Christmas thank you!  Cara was professional, expedient and is truly a master of her craft!
