So the studio has been running for approximately two months as of today and while there are still some wrinkles to iron out, on the whole, I couldn't be happier! I've had some great people pass through the doors already and I hope to be able to welcome many more artists into the studio whether they're working in glass or some other material.
(Mathieu Grodet was our first guest. Seen here doing some cane-work with my fellow Harbourfront alum; Silvia Taylor assisting.)
(Even Alfred came by because of course he did. The man is everywhere! He's working on components for a large-scale installation here.)
I've been hosting some groups events as we'll and it's been an absolute blast! BBQ and a few drinks under the cool down tent is a great way to finish off a day in the hot shop.
(This gang was the best. Thanks ladies!)
Building this place was difficult but more than that it was lonely! Very happy to have some company finally. Looking forward to more smiling faces around here this Summer!
