Culture Days Creations: Custom Glass Tiles

Culture Days is a nation-wide movement aimed at engaging Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities. Every September, studios and venues across the country open their doors and offer fun (and free!) opportunities to explore both your community, and your talents.

A friend and I visited a few interesting venues, including Fired Up! Glass Arts, where we created custom glass pieces by carefully placing small shards of glass on transparent tiles, which meld together once fired in a kiln. I came up with a wolf face (of course) while Damian crafted an intense tiger (also no surprise). Ironically, the brown bits of glass I used for the nose of the wolf closely resembles chocolate (my favourite). The raised texture of the bigger bits of glass really catch my eye!

Keep an eye out for Culture Days festivities next September.
