Brook creates each piece by hand in her studio located in Manitoba, Canada.
Formwork in glass.
I have been working with glass in one form or another for over twenty years and I enjoy the solitary nature of lampworked glass particularly.
I create each piece by hand from my studio. The forms I create are derived through experimentation of medium and informed by the natural environment I am surrounded by.
The artistic process begins when I imagine and sketch a piece. I use three different sizes of oxygen and propane fuelled torches to melt and blow the glass and I use a kiln to slowly cool the glass.
