Evelyn Duberry is a glass artist in Ottawa.
I like to play with fire and glass… and think out loud.
I’ve adored glass for as long as I can remember. When I was very little, I loved holding my marble sets up to the sky and marveling as the colours sparkled and blended in the sunlight. I would roll them in my hands revelling in the smoothness, varying shades and satisfying <clink> as they knocked together.
I moved from marbles to jewellery making and eventually accumulated a fine collection of glass beads. I enjoyed making jewellery and my pieces sold well but I was always frustrated at the limited design possibilities of even high end (but still mass market) beads. Over the years, I’ve dabbled in just about every craft medium out there. Of course, none of them could ever produce what I really wanted: the beautiful, ethereal intensity of custom, flameworked glass.
