Stained Glass Art Studio
Nancy Morrison has been designing and constructing original works of stained glass for homes, businesses and churches for over 30 years.
She approaches her work from an artistic standpoint, incorporating the architectural and interior design elements with the natural light of the space. Nancy endeavors to capture the essence of the client’s taste and colours in the collaborative process. The unique quality of each commission is an enjoyable challenge that fullfills her inventive nature and keeps her passionate about Stained Glass.
She leans towards using the handmade mouth blown art glass, which gives a rich clarity and quality to a piece. Utilizing both the copper foil and lead came techniques, she integrates sandblasting, glass painting, gemstones and fusing when applicable.
With COMMISSIONS there is a three step process: Initial consultation either on location or at the studio to discuss concept and brainstorm. By email for out of town customers. Second a meeting to view the design and glass sample recommendations. And finally the installation or pick up.
After taking an evening class Nancy learned and gained experience during a one year apprenticeship with Ray Brunette at Glasslight Studio in Edmonton in 1980 and working for B.G.Malkinson doing larger architectural works. She has continued since then in her own studios in Edmonton and now in the Comox Valley since 2000.
In the “Tin Town” working studio gallery Nancy Morrison has several works on display where she does artwork for galleries, commissions, restorations and also teaches classes.
She exhibits in the members shows of the Comox Valley Art Gallery and the Arts Council and in various art shows and galleries on Vancouver Island.
Nancy sells her work in the CVAG Gallery Shop, South Hollow Gallery, Salish Sea Gallery in Bowser, and the Reflective Spirit Gallery in Ucluelet. And also in her studio where she participates in the yearly Central Island Artisans and Tin Town Studio Tours.
