Susan Higgins, glass artist, was selected as the 2014 artisan for the Huntsville Festival of the Arts. Her image expresses the spirit of the festival and will be used on brochures and promotional materials.
Susan said, "Almost instantly an impression of the image I wanted to make emerged in my mind’s eye; a joyful celebration bursting out of the Algonquin Theatre, into the Muskoka sky. I began experimenting with different ways to achieve my vision in glass."
Susan's colourful art glass portrays natural themes using the ancient technique of fused glass. Specially formulated glasses are cut, composed in layers and melted in a kiln to create imaginative effects in original bowls, platters, art glass and window panels.
Susan Higgins' studio will be open for the Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour on September 27, 28 and October 4, 5, 2014 from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.
Held during peak Autumn colours, the Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour is a self-guided tour featuring some of the finest artists and craftspeople working within the region.
