Bridget Wilson – Alton Mill Arts Centre

Equine Art & Photography Town of Caledon

Since returning to the arts from a career in human resources close to fifteen years ago, Bridget has applied her knowledge and enthusiasm towards the design, fabrication and installation of essentially flat pieces of glass into artistically functional furniture and accent pieces. These creations can be seen in homes and businesses across North America.

Having originally attended York University’s Fine Arts Program, Bridget continued to expand her knowledge by participating in many workshops and self-study. Over the past five years she has embarked on a new journey into the world of Fused and Slumped glass. The fluidity of the molten glass is unpredictable thus creating something that is truly one of a kind. There is art in the science and science in the art!

“I have always been a practical person. I want my work to reflect that. As beautiful as ‘glass’ can be on its own, it can also be functional. From my panels, room-dividers and tables to jewellery, platters, bowls and garden art, there is no limit.”

In addition to her glass offering, Bridget has been studying Jewellery Design and Fabrication at George Brown College in Toronto and other jewellery workshops where she is now working with silver and Swarovski Crystals to enhance her glass jewellery.
