June Derksen, Winnipeg, MB: Glass
Venue Section: Penthouse Level/4th Floor
Working with fused glass gives me a sense of freedom. It encourages me to take risks and to push my creative soul. I draw inspiration from personal experiences and places visited, armed with camera and always on the lookout for my next project. I work with sheet glass and frit, which is crushed glass in various sizes. Layer upon layer is built up like a collage and joined together in a kiln. The reveal is always exciting.
