For those of you that are visiting for the first time, we hope you enjoy the site. For the rest of you, welcome back and thank you for your patience!!
Things may look the same but they have been rebuilt from the ground up. We will gradually be adding content back to the site as time permits, but unfortunately some of it will be gone forever. We do look forward to adding new and exciting content in the future and hope that you pop by every so often to see what has changed.
We have reluctantly changed The Gallery to a format that should be a bit more intuitive and it loads much faster now. Even though the old one was prettier, it was just getting too slow with the number of photos we had. Although it looks similar, The Store is completely new, and should be a little bit more intuitive this time around. We've also added a bit of extra security to prevent us from getting all that spam.
Please let us know if you run into any troubles with the website and we will be sure to check into things.

We are pleased to announce that once again, John will be taking part in the Dundas Studio Tour.
Glass is a beautiful and fascinating medium and photographing glass can be very challenging!!
The angle and intensity of the changing light, as well as the contrast of the different colours give John's pieces a life far greater than what can be captured on film. They are constantly changing throughout the day and choosing just one photo to represent them on the webpage can be very difficult! A perfect example of this is a collaboration that John has just completed with fellow glass artist Teresa Seaton.
When presenting this piece we have decided it required 2 photos.
|One to show the piece in full
sun that highlights the glass.
|Another that shows the surface
detail of the roots.

John enjoyed working with Teresa on this piece very much and looks forward to future collaborations with her.
