Vania Burton is best known as a fused glass artist who
uses “on edge” construction methods and warm
temperature firing schedules in a kiln to create
colourful, textural pieces that tell a story.
Vania’s job is to find the story using the form and
context of the medium. Glass, as a medium, is the
perfect marriage between art and science and its
complexity demands special treatment and knowledge
to bring out its best qualities.
Vania has taken glass classes and workshops in
Canada, the United States and Europe but also draws
on life experiences and her curious nature to
experiment and create new pieces. Vania is currently
experimenting with bubble capture and pressing
Vania is a long time exhibitor at the Beacon Fine Art
Show in Calgary, and has also shown work at the
Calgary Stampede, Elbow Room Fine Art Show,
Riverside Art Group Show and Harmony Fine Art
Collective Show, Lake Country Artwalk, and Predator
Ridge Inspired Living Art Show.
