Gabriola Island, BC, Canada
D’dance Glass is Dirk Huysman and Mary Ann Richards, hot glass artists who dance collaboratively with fire, light and breath. After learning to work with glass at Alberta College of Art and Design, Espace Verre, and Red Deer College’s Summer Series, we are now happy to reside on Gabriola full time. Working out of our own hot shop on Gabriola Island we are influenced by the rich texture, colour, and images of our ocean and forest world.
We strive to give each glass piece we create together a uniqueness and artistic touch that fosters a long-term engagement with the glass, be it functional or ornamental.
