Bonny Houston

Available at the Alberta Craft Gallery - Edmonton

Playing with fire is a passion for Bonny (Calgary, AB). She received her glass art education from the Alberta College of Art + Design, The Tokyo Glass Art Institute, Red Deer College and Sheridan College. A committed member of the glass art community, Bonny exhibits locally, nationally and internationally, while maintaining an active studio practice.

Bonny has been creating her colourful line of glass from her studio Houston Hotshop in Calgary since 1994. Bonny was born and raised in Lacadena, Saskatchewan, and has been making hot glass since the mid 1980s. She finds inspiration in the colours and forms around her, from the shades of Asiatic lilies in her garden, the flash of koi in the backyard pond, and the subtle blondes of native grasses.
