Sandpiper Studio

The Circle Craft Christmas Market returns to the Vancouver Convention Centre West next week, running from November 11-15. Each week leading up to the Market, we have been featuring exhibiting artists.

Today we’re highlighting Sandpiper Studio of Windermere, BC, who is new to the Market in 2015.

20772084511_09091aea1e_o

Sandpiper Studio is a small scale production and design studio specializing in functional handblown glass. Their intent is to carry forward traditional glass making techniques with modern aesthetics and design sensibilities to produce meaningful and functional objects that resonate in everyday life.

In addition to using traditional glass blowing techniques to create their pieces, they also hand screen print glass enamels to make their own decals. Once the screen printed decals are made, they are applied to the glass forms and then refired in a kiln. This process allows Sandpiper Studio to achieve printed imagery and patterns that are permanently fused to the glass surface.

You’ll find Sandpiper Studio and hundreds of other exhibitors from across Canada at the Circle Craft Christmas Market.
