KAREN ISTEAD GLASS ARTIST
Karen is a glass artist living on south Baptiste Lake in North Hastings. Using stained and fused glass techniques, she strives to capture the light reflecting upon the forests and waterways. With a primary focus upon fusing glass, she uses her own photos of trees and lakes to make impressions that sparkle and dazzle like light and sunshine itself. The fusing technique can be considered painting with glass, using glass powders to large sheets of glass. These glass frits are often created by pounding it to the sizes required. These glass creations are then fused in the glass kiln, sometimes multiple times. Many of her works are Birch trees and groves that show depth, as if you would be able to walk among the trees themselves. The colourful light is captured with transparent glass for window hangings, opaques glass for wall presentation and to display on end tables.
Karens glass education began at Halliburton School of Arts and then became self taught with twenty years of experience and all things glass.
Karen’s work is well known during the Bancroft and Area Studio Tour. Her work can also be found at galleries in Wilno, Bancroft and Tweed, or by appointment at her home.
