Canadian glass artist Gundi Viviani-Finch has been creating exquisite glass sculptures for over twenty years in her studio in the Norhtumberland Hills, just east of Toronto. Through a meticulous technique of bonding small pieces of plate glass with a powerful adhesive, she builds large works of art that dance in the light, an effusive blending of nature and technology – an organic pixillation. Galleries and private collectors worldwide have commissioned these works that are at once modern and timeless.
“Castells”, Gundi’s latest collection, marry art and recycling in pieces reminiscent of North African minarets. Castells are created with found glass objects, mostly of a utilitarian nature. Candy bowls, vases, dessert plates and punch bowls are re purposed as glittering towers that demand attention and space while sending a powerful message of re-invention. Says Gundi “My glass towers are a whimsical collection of pieces of diverse heritage. Travel with them as they reach skywards.”
