Flame - Glass - Magic
This year I have been given the honour of producing glass poppy pins and brooches for the Royal Canadian Legion. I am deeply moved by this request and this privilege.
As an artist, there is a driving force a direction we follow. My focus and my love in glass has always been flowers and florals. It is where my journey began… the first time I saw a handmade floral bead, I knew that this was an art I needed to have in my life, to learn, to make and to share. It seems to me now, that journey has taken me to this moment, to this honour: Creating glass poppy pins and brooches in remembrance to those that served.
Both my parents were WW2 veterans, and in our household growing up, November 11th was a very important day, celebrated and respected. Memories and stories were shared and in my brothers and my early life, the war was a part of our day to day lives, as it had been so often spoken of and described.
I invite you to visit the Royal Canadian Legion site. Become a member. Purchase or make a donation. Participate in Remembrance!
