Bruce Thurston

Medium: Glass

Region: Vancouver Coast & Mountains

Biography:

Bruce and his wife Fran Feuer were taught the basics of lampworking in 1990. In 1992 they bought a small home on Texada
Island where his wife monopolized the torch so Bruce started building tiny, simple whimsical images with the scrap glass and firing them. He glued magnets to his glass pictures and was happily surprised that these sold as fridge magnets at the local farmers market and small craft fairs.

Bruce has now been making and selling his glass pictures for 20 years. All his pieces are constructed from tiny pieces of glass which he cuts, grinds, assembles and fires in a kiln. He does not use any molds as all his designs are his own and each item is unique as he builds them one at a time.
