Grey Glass Bowl ‘Shadow Bowl’ By Michelle Atkinson
Michelle’s grey glass bowl, Shadow, is part of an award-winning series. Embodying the feeling of nature in Western Canada, Shadow Bowl is heavenly! Using a multi-step fused glass process and her own custom-made texture moulds, Michelle’s vision is created. Circular tiles made from tree bark have been pressed into the glass leaving an impression of this natural element. The resulting circular depression represents both natures lifecycle, community and connection of all things.
This exquisite grey glass bowl will be the highlight of any surface.
Grey Glass Bowl Artist
Michelle Atkinson was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta. In 2003 she gained a diploma in New Media Production and Design from the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology. Since she has become an internationally recognised graphic designer, amassing over 30 awards. In 2010 on a whim Michelle attended a weekend glass class, it was there that her interest in glass was sparked.
With a desire to explore all possibilities within glass, Michelle set up a dedicated studio space. Although mostly self-taught, studying method and processes has enabled her to create her visions. Being able to create muti-layered concepts ensures a greater depth to her work.
Nature and landscapes are the basis of most of Michelles work. As her experience grows she finds herself bridging methods for fine craft with those for fine art.
Creating everything from mixed media jewellery to cast-glass awards, purposeful home decor to sculpture. Michelle has taken her practise all over Western Canada, where she has participated in group shows and markets.
In 2019 Michelle was the Home Décor winner of the Made in Alberta Awards.
Michelle is looking forwards to the day when she can become a full-time artist.
