Tim and Jason produce fused glass gift-ware, souvenirs and other household items, which we’re selling in local shops, and gift stores and galleries across Canada. We make all of our pieces in a purpose-built workshop on the back of our home in Hantsport, Nova Scotia. Our home is not open for retail sales, but we may open by appointment for small workshops in the coming months. We are enjoying this new project in our lives as we become part of the local business communities of the Annapolis Valley and Avon Region.
- Our products are available locally at Hantsport Home Hardware, Mosaic Market in Windsor, and Noggins Corner Market in Greenwich, NS. Check out a longer list here!
Many of our current products were originally made at Studio Glass by Sharon Laska, of Maitland, Nova Scotia. She retired from the fused-glass business in 2014, and we purchased the business, trained with Sharon for a few months, and then jumped in head-first at the beginning of 2015. We are now making our own original items to offer as well.
We are beginning to sell our glassware at area markets and festivals this summer, and we’re still getting the studio ready to offer small workshops in the coming months (for small groups of up to 6 people), as well as offering regular public workshops around the region. Tim, a provincially-certified school teacher, is now booking workshops for travel to area groups. Contact us by phone or email to schedule a class! Details about other workshops will be put on this site and our Facebook page as we get more plans made.
About Fused Glass
Fused glass is an artform whose origins go back centuries, and we enjoy the challenges of this beautiful craft that we’ve loved for a long time. We make every product by hand; the glass is cut from large sheets, assembled and then fired in our kilns to a temperature of about 1400˚F. Every bit of glass can be used, down to the smallest scraps, leaving almost no wasted materials. Best of all, the bright colours of glass will not fade, even in direct sunlight.
We are so happy that our little mini-truck has been able to make an appearance as our mobile market. We’ll be at the Smokin’ Blues Fest Craft Show in Windsor on July 10-11; the Hantsport Homecoming Concert on July 25, and the Avon River Days Street Fair on July 31. If it’s outdoors, look for us at the truck!
You can also check us out on Facebook. That seems to be where we’re busiest online.
