Traditionally, reverse painting on glass is a ancient “cold art” form consisting of applying oil paint to a piece of glass and then viewing the image by turning the glass over and looking through the glass at the image. Lori takes it a step further with glass enamels and adds 1400F to the process! After numerous kiln firings, the result is beautiful intensely coloured glass items.

The tartan of Cape Breton, was designed in 1957 by Elizabeth Grant. Its colour scheme was derived from a 1907 poem by Lillian Crewe Walsh:

Black for the wealth of our coal mines
Grey for our Cape Breton Steel
Green for our lofty mountains, our valleys and our fields
Gold for the golden sunsets shining bright on the lakes of Bras d’Ors
To show us God’s hand has lingered To Bless Cape Breton’s shore.

I am The Fused Glass Diva!

I have been a glass artist for most of my adult life. Starting out with lead came stained glass, and traditional glass painting.

I loved fused glass from the very first day I was introduced to it. I am truely inspired by the freedom of seamless colour change, the fluidity of melted glass, the physical manipulation achieved with temperature, gravity and tools and the ability to make three dimensional objects.

​One of the best things about fused glass is the practicality of the pieces I love to create. To me…it is the very definition of “Functional Art”.
