Leatherbarrow Glass Studio - Welcome
Bob Leatherbarrow has been working with kiln-formed glass since 1988. Known for his innovative styles, techniques, and designs, Bob has taken an experimental approach to developing unique textures and colour palettes using glass powders.
kiln-formed glass bowls and sculptures explore the subtle hues and
delicate beauty of naturally occurring textures and encourage the viewer
to ponder their origin.
Bob has recently moved to
Salt Spring Island,
British Columbia, where he
makes glass and teaches a wide variety of kiln-formed glass workshops.
Bob is also a popular guest instructor on both the national and international warm glass scenes.
There are still spots available in
Bob's June 2013

September workshops are FULL -

2013.02.07 Every January and February Bob devotes studio time to
developing new concepts. This year the challenge has been to work
crisp straight lines as accents in transparent designs. New work based
on this exploration will be included in the Symbolically 8 show at
Gallery 8 in April.
