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 hope to 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Many of our current products were originally made at Studio Glass by Sharon Laska, of Maitland, Nova Scotia.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 dove in head-first at the beginning of 2015. We are now making our own original items to offer as well. 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!
We hope to offer small workshops in our home-based studio in the coming months with groups of 4-6 people, as well as offering regular public workshops around the region. Those details will be put on this site as we get more plans underway.
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 were honoured to participate in Kelly Mitchelmore’s 6th annual art show in Windsor, NS. Check out this blog post for more information. And you can check out her totally fantastic art work at her website.
You can also check us out on Facebook. That seems to be where we’re busiest online.
