Alana Biffert

Calgary, Alberta, canada

Though born and raised Canadian, glass engulfed Biffert's childhood as half her adolescence, was spent growing up in the glass blowing culture of Malta, an island south of Sicily. After moving to Canada and attending the Alberta University of The Arts (AUA), she began to hone her calling. Since graduating with a major in glass in 2008, she has been pursuing glass on a professional level.

Her work consists of larger scale mixed media installations.

Often times her attention is driven by details absorbed through nature’s discourse such as the crevasses left behind on the mountain hill tops. There is a dynamic relationship between glass and wood that she has chosen to venture. The resolution of these contradicting materials passing through one another are objects that hold the permanent print of an exchange.
