Location:Glass Studio

Julia Hillyer is a 2006 graduate of Sheridan College, Oakville. She first discovered glass at the Alberta College of Art and Design, where she also explored the mediums of drawing, painting, jewellery and sculpture.

With glass, Julia strives to marry function with form, often introducing 2-dimensional imagery to the blown vessel. Her work reflects her love of light and colour, as well as her interest in nature.

"Glass is a material of inherent beauty and limitless possibility. Its fluid grace makes it an exhilarating and inspirational challenge to form."

As I blow glass, it reacts to my touch, my breath, my speed, just as I react to it. It is truly a reflective material - a reflector of light, concept, artist. It is also a voice, a vehicle of expression.
