Hi! I’m Kara. I craft whimsical glass florals in Calgary, Canada. Typically my pieces are made up of a combination of copper foil stained glass, copper wire and found objects, but I also work in glass fusing and mosaics. These unique techniques result in unexpected pieces that break the rules of traditional glass.

I use my 15 years of communications and public relations education and experience to introduce new eyes to the magic of glass via social media (260k+ followers between Instagram, Facebook and TikTok) and in-person classes in Calgary and around the world. I also have a book to get people started – “Stained Glass for Beginners” was published by Leisure Arts in Oct 2021.

All items are crafted in my home studio where I hide, do art and hang out with my two young girls and husband ✌️.
