Triangular Glass Platters By Michelle Atkinson
The triangular glass platters are a fabulous addition to any collection or home. The triangular-shaped platter has a stone-like texture. This paired with a circular tile made from a tree bark impression presents a real natural feel.
The name ‘Big Sky’ is in reference to Alberta prairie skies that seem to go on forever and the nickname ‘Big Sky Country’.
The mint coloured platter has a stone-like texture paired with circular tiles made from tree bark. Creating a rocky feel to the piece.
The merlot red coloured platter has a stone-like texture paired with two circular tiles made from tree bark with added gold accents which adorn the circular tiles in this piece.
These triangular glass platters are a delight!
Triangular Glass Platters 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.
