D’dance Glass is a collaboration between Dirk Huysman and Mary Ann Richards. We work together in our Gabriola Island studio to craft fun, funky and functional glass creations, and welcome visitors to experience the dance of its creation. We have studied glass blowing and sand casting at ACAD, Red Deer College summer series and Espace Verre. We are drawn to the interplay of light, colour and fire that transforms molten glass to unique, evocative objects. Our work is available at a variety of galleries on Gabriola and Vancouver Island, and at a number of craft and art fairs and exhibitions.
