Wendy McPeak (Sherwood Park, AB) has been involved in the art glass community for many years and is currently on the board of The Glass Art Association of Canada. Wendy has worked as a glass artist and kiln technician for local art glass studios, creating architectural kiln formed panels, tiles and glass sinks. Her work has been installed in numerous residential and commercial spaces across Alberta. Wendy is currently creating beautiful objects in her Sherwood Park Studio.

“I am inspired by the diversity of the Alberta landscape. I am fascinated by the colours and textures of the Prairie terrain; the layers of nature’s canvas laid bare by the changing seasons. The glass itself challenges my creative process with its ability to be strong yet fragile, reflective and refractive, opaque or transparent. Mostly I am driven to wake up that flat piece of glass and give it colour and depth.”

Each unique glass piece is individually hand crafted involving the manipulation of glass powders, kiln forming and extensive cold working.
