Violet Finvers was born and raised in Edmonton and moved to Vancouver to pursue a career as a graphic designer. In 1987, she graduated with honours from the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design and has been a professional graphic designer for more than 20 years. Violet began working with glass in 2008 under the mentorship of Brock Craig at Craig Studios.
Violet has participated in numerous exhibitions in Canada and the US and was a finalist in E-merge 2010, an international, juried, kiln-formed glass competition. She was the 2012 recipient of the BC Glass Arts Association Pilchuck Scholarship. Her work can be found in galleries across Canada. She works out of her home studio in Burnaby, BC.
Violet¹s kiln-formed glass is clean and contemporary. Her attention to
detail and finish and her love of colour, pattern and texture reveal
themselves in distinctly unique, functional and sculptural pieces, equally elegant for the office and home. She has recently added hand-made, sterling silver and fused glass jewellery to her repertoire.
