Julian Duerksen

Medium: Glass

Region: Vancouver Coast & Mountains


Glass blowing is an ancient craft which has grown into a modern day art form requiring technical skill, physical stamina, and persistence. Julian Duerksen got caught up in the medium when he took an elective glass blowing class while attending the Alberta College of Art in Calgary, Alberta. He has been working with hot glass for over 15 years. In 2004, he opened his own studio where he creates glass objects and stemware with close attention to artistic and technical detail. He is intrigued by the vibrancy of lushly coloured glass as well as by the clean and simple reflective qualities of clear glass.
