The Glass Bakery Ltd Studio Information

Smile. Enjoy the Moment.

I design from the heart.   Living on Canada’s Atlantic coast, I’m surrounded by sea, sky and forest. I cherish the small things in life that bring a smile and warm the heart: the smell of a wild rose, the full moon rising over the ocean and the morning bird song.

A drumming woodpecker, a whistling chickadee – all familiar yet unique, the birds vulnerable yet tenacious; amusing.  Their presence is both fleeting and constant. Watching wild birds pauses the day, nourishing the spirit and through my glass birds, I hope you too will smile and enjoy the moment.

The Glass Bakery’s fused studio-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.

The Birds

A collectable series of whimsical, happy shoreline and woodland birds.

Each glass bird is handcrafted, first by designing then cutting shapes from clear glass and building layers of finely powdered coloured glass between the clear shapes. Next, pieces are kiln-baked, fused at ultra high temperatures then strengthened by a controlled cooling. No paints, glazes or moulds are used. No two birds are the same.

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

The Artisan and The Glass

I established The Glass Bakery™ in Nova Scotia in 2010. Drawn by expansive wilderness and nature's escape, I followed my heart to Canada, and after a lifetime in science, discovered art and glass fusing.

Following the loss of my beloved dog Hudson, I began to enjoy the birds in the garden. These little moments of happiness, led to creating glass birds.
