About the artist

“At my core, I am a glass artist with a heart split in two. I was born and raised in southern Ontario and much of my life has existed there. However, with my business in Saint John, NB, I find myself deeply connected and inspired by the coastline of the Bay of Fundy. The highest tides in the world serve as a constant reminder of the ebb and flow of life, and the need to just keep breathing in and out. My practice shows a wide range of glass, from small Canadian objects such as curling rock pendant necklaces made on the torch, to blown work that incorporates organic pieces of driftwood and rocks found on the shores of the bay. My work is deeply rooted in my love for Canada and how we see ourselves in this world. I aim to take this duality within life, geography, and spirit, and tell a story in glass.” – Adrienne Woods

Adrienne Woods is a Canadian glass artist and small business owner. She graduated from the Alberta University of the Arts majoring in Glass in 2012. She spent the past decade continuing to build her glass skills taking classes at Pilchuck Glass School, Corning Museum of Glass, and Terminal City. Adrienne has had a passion for learning her whole life and passing on those skills to others. She also runs a successful property business in Saint John, NB. It is there, on the shores of the Bay of Fundy, that she finds peace and inspiration. She is now bringing glass into focus in a full-time capacity at her artist residency at The Living Arts Center.
