610 Sixth Street

Maria is a glass artist from Coquitlam, British Columbia. Her journey as a glass artist began in 2014 where she took a glassblowing workshop at Terminal City Glass Co-op. From an early age, she has always been fascinated with glass. On a high school trip to Venice, she fell in love with watching masters work on their craft. She was amazed at the combination of art, creativity, science and strength that glassblowing encompass. She feels that working with glass as a material is such an amazing and versatile experience and is very lucky to have found this medium.
