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.
Update: Susan is not a current member of the Studio Tour, please visit her website to contact her directly.

Scott Turnbull is a photographer on the Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour and his studio (that he shares with his wife, jeweller Miranda Britton) will be open on September 28, 29 and October 5, 6 from 10 am to 6 pm. Visit The Stable Studio near Windermere, Muskoka.
Scott states, "the tour is a perfect opportunity to get out and drive through the extraordinary beauty that is the region in fall. With studios dotting the roads from Gravenhurst to Huntsville, Dorset to Windermere, visitors get a chance to go some places they’ve never been. Over the two weekends, the fall colours are at their absolute peak, and the views from Muskoka’s roads are unforgettable. In the case of the Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour, the journey is as much fun as the destination."
