Featured in the Vancouver Sun and TLC Vancouver, glass artist Braden Hammond has skyrocketed from life as a simple student at Santa Cruz Art and Glass Studio to the current head of one of Canada’s largest lampworking facilities. His artwork peppers galleries and boutiques throughout the country, ranging from statement glass jewellery to chandeliers shaped to resemble glowing roses or venus flytraps devouring lightbulbs. At his studio, Hammond also hosts classes for budding glass artists at beginning through advanced levels, teaching students the art of glass blowing, borosilicate glass manipulation, and crafting glass with marble moulds.
