ORIGINAL AND UNIQUE one of a kind works of wearable Westcoast glass art.

Andrea Symons

The Art of Lampwork

image73

I create one of a kind glass beads, copper enamel pieces, and mixed media wearable art.  Most of my work is Westcoast design influenced, with the utmost respect for our cultural heritage. 

Being a Fine Arts medium junkie, I’ve tried most forms of expression, but I got hooked on glass and I've been lampworking for about 18 years; and am still very much addicted to it.  I have newly discovered cold working glass and enameling glass and copper.  My newer works are an integration of the mixed mediums.  I'm flattered by the attention and praise my work receives and look forward to many more years on the torch, and to continue my love affair with glass and all forms of its manipulation.

I am BC West Coast born and raised, by Art loving and parents.   I am fortunate to be influenced and have known many great artists of the northwest coast, where my pride resides.   Although I am without my First Nations status, I am very cognizant of our cultures and acknowledge their profound impact on me and my work.      My pieces are made with great respect for the people and for the depth and understanding of our reciprocal caring for our lands and oceans,     My pieces are not replications of traditional designs, but my interpretations which illustrate how I’ve been moved by the patterns flow and grace, and deep spiritual love for our west coast home and its creatures.   I have been lampworking since 2001.
